Kendon and Kaelin Mackinnon of 150 Mile House and Aimee and Jana Tschritter of Beaumont, Alta. made ‘Rainbow Loom’ bracelets while camping in Salmon Arm after the 150 Mile House family was evacuated from their home.

The quartet sold the elastic bracelets in support of BC wildfire victims to campers in the area.

This morning, July 20, they dropped off the $105 raised to the Canadian Red Cross.
