Delta firefighters come to rescue of summer camps

The Delta Firefighters Charitable Society gave the Burns Bog Conservation Society’s Marcello Oliverio a $1,500 cheque Tuesday to replace items stolen during a recent day camp break-in and to stop the society from being targeted for theft again.

“We are very excited for next year’s camps,” said Oliverio. “Thanks to Delta firefighters’ generosity, our day camp area will be secure with a new fence and lockable shed. We couldn’t secure our day camp without the Delta Firefighters Charitable Society’s gift.”

Thieves broke into the day camp enclosure on the B.C. Day long weekend, stealing key items needed to run the camp, including first aid kits, tools, radios and flashlights.

CUPE BC, CUPE Local 454 and CUPE Local 1091 have also made donations to help the society recover from the theft.
