Surrey Search and Rescue is thanking the public for coming forward with donations, after equipment from their vehicle compound was stolen.
“It’s been kind of overwhelming actually.”
A generator and an out board motor were stolen from two vehicles, but with the kindness of strangers, they will be able to replace the stolen equipment.
Cameron Clark with Surrey Search and Rescue says it’s a great Christmas gift for them.
“A lot of individuals have come forward, and donated money for the team as well as to replace the generator that was stolen.”
Clark says he doesn’t know yet how much money has been raised since they put out the call for donations on Monday, posting on their website that their equipment was taken.
He also wants to wish the public a very Merry Christmas after what could’ve been a downer during the holidays, has now turned positive.
