WHITBY, ON - The cars and pickup trucks have been coming and going all morning at Cam-Scott International, and they're bringing cargo with them.
The Toronto-area fleet used social media to share an offer to deliver relief supplies to Fort McMurray, Alberta residents displaced by fire. And the response began within hours. It's come in the form of brand new baby clothes, still on the hangers, blankets and more.
Cam-Scott's relief effortsBy tonight, the first load will be heading to a warehouse in Edmonton, adding to the fleet's regular weekly Alberta-bound shipments.
"Alberta has been good to us over many, many years," says fleet president Glenn Weddel. "It's a great opportunity to help and give something back to them in their time of need."
It is the latest example of industry support offered in the last couple of days. The trucking industry has already responded with donations from associations including the Canadian Trucking Alliance, Ontario Trucking Association, and Alberta Motor Transport Association. The Mullen Group reports that Alberta employees and families have opened their homes to those in need.
