Ponoka folks show solidarity for Humboldt

Schools, offices & folks showed their support for the Humboldt Broncos on Humboldt Strong Jersey Day

Thursday proved to be a day of solidarity for the Humboldt Broncos.

Dubbed Humboldt Strong Jersey Day, folks around Canada showed their support for the hockey team. All the area schools including Ponoka Secondary Campus and St. Augustine School showed their support.

In Ponoka there were schools, offices, politicians and more who took the time to show their support by wearing a hockey jersey. It became a day where Canadians united in their support for the Saskwatchewan hockey team, as well as the families of the victims and first responders.

Along with a strong show of support the GoFundMe campaign to support the team and its family has now exceeded $10 million. The fundraiser was started by Sylvie Kellington who is a Humboldt resident who wanted to help out.
