Humboldt Strong

City staff and Arthur Funeral Home organized a condolence book that Saultites from across our community have signed and we will be sending that to Humboldt next week.

The Soo Greyhounds organization is  is donating $20,000.00 to the fundraising effort, and a group of our citizens has organized a #HumboldtStrong t-shirt fundraiser which I think raised approximately $15,000.00 at Friday night’s game. 

It is really touching to see and it makes me proud of our community. I hope many of you feel the same way.

Well done, Sault Ste. Marie.
