Family thanks community for helping after fire

The Robberstad-Perry family was given an early Christmas on Monday morning, courtesy of Prospera Credit Union in Agassiz. Shaemos, 9, twins Veronica and Constance, 7, and four year old Billy (not seen) unwrapped their presents happily. The family lost their home to a fire two weeks ago and the community has been helping them back on their feet. Prospera donated $500 cash to the family, and handed over $800 in gift cards from local businesses.   - Jessica Peters/ Observer

As you may know we had a house fire this holiday season. There are many people that helped us through our tragedy.

First of all we'd like to thank James Sicard and the Agassiz Blueberry Farms for giving us a home to rent, we are very grateful to have a home here in Agassiz! 
We would also like to thank Chris Wejr (Principal) and Sheilagh (Secretary) at Kent elementary for taking the time and effort to organize donations, and a fundraiser, and helping us to find a place in Agassiz.

We want to extend our thanks to all the wonderful people of Agassiz and beyond, for helping us through our difficult time. We are so thankful for being a part of such an amazing community of people!! We could never have made it without you all! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

The Robberstad-Perry Family
