If it takes a community to raise a child, it takes a very compassionate community to help out a family in a medical crisis. Chris, from the Dirty Diggers excavating outfit in Castlegar, and the family of a pair of beautiful babies are hoping the helping neighbourly hand shows up at this weekend’s Pass Creek Fall Fair.
Thoughts this time around will largely focus on the Bate family, and babies Summer Don and Wyatt, whose challenges in life began before birth. Arriving only this past July, the pair has been stricken by some serious health issues. They’ve been receiving good treatment but the family has a long and costly ordeal ahead of it. To top things off, father Steve has some critical kidney-related issues to cope with as well.
For the past several years the Dirty Diggers attraction has been a magnet for kids and adults alike. Many of us at some point have been fascinated by large, brightly painted machines moving big stuff around.
This year folks stopping by the Dirty Diggers display at the fair will have the option of making a donation toward the ongoing expenses which lie ahead for the Bate family.
Every dollar, every dime raised will be matched by Dirty Diggers. Maybe you can see your way clear, to see to it the Diggers dish out a lot.
Have a great fair.
