Hundreds of locals continue to show their support for Humboldt.
 
Jersey Day spanned from coast-to-coast on Thursday (Apr.12) and included the Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club.
 
Kids of all ages joined together to make posters, banners and decorate the building in support of the Humboldt Broncos and everyone affected by the tragic bus crash.
 
"As a team with the 101 and the main site location we all decided to come together to show our support and love for them," said team leader at the Boys and Girls Club Krystal Bailey.
 
Bailey added the ideas were brought forward by the kids, so after school they spent their time preparing.
 
Locally, a significant number of schools and workplaces also participated in the special day.
 
A bottle drive for the players and their families is this weekend in the Fort.
 
The GoFundMe page started by Sylvie Kellington has now reached over $10 million.
 
A vigil for former Ranger Stephen Wack and Trader Darcy Haugan will be held on Saturday (Apr.14) from 12-2 p.m. at the JRC.
