The local community is continuing to show its support in the wake of the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
 
A bottle drive presented by the Fort Saskatchewan Fury is planned for this Saturday (Apr.14) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Jubilee Recreation Centre parking lot, with all proceeds going to the victims and family members affected by the crash.
 
Both bottles and cash will be welcome at the drive, with Straightline Chrysler matching all funds raised.
 
JV Driver Fabricators have volunteered to supply a truck and trailer for bottle pickups and Mix 107 is the media sponsor.
 
Fort Saskatchewan mayor Gale Katchur offered her thoughts on the tragedy, saying the community is heartbroken.
 
"We grieve alongside the nation for the Humboldt Broncos hockey players and their families," she said. "When you're so far away from this, all you can do is be there with thoughts and prayers and just show that your community cares."
 
The rest of the nation and the world are also continuing to offer their support. A GoFundMe campaign for the team and their families had raised $7.8 million as of late Tuesday (Apr.10) afternoon.

Fifteen people died after the Humboldt Broncos team bus was involved in a collision with a semi-truck on Apr.6 in Saskatchewan.
