A Rimbey teen is one of a group of concerned individuals who have gone above and beyond to help the families of Fort McMurray affected by the wildfires.

Kohlbi Alexandre, 19, and other members of Red Deer F150’s designed Alberta Strong decals and sold them for $10 each, raising more than $10,000.

A portion of the money raised was sent to the SPCA in Fort McMurray, feed was purchased for evacuee’s horses, food and supplies were taken to evacuees staying at Northlands.

School supplies were purchased for children who would be attending school elsewhere and cash donations were also given to families who had lost everything.

Patty Alexandre is proud of her son and the other young people who worked hard to help the Fort McMurray families.

She said they all worked hard and have truly made a difference in the lives of many.

Those interested in purchasing a decal may contact patty at 403-598-7876.
