When vandals hit the Salvation Army High River’s only delivery vehicle last month, staff and volunteers decided it was the last straw for the van. The organization couldn’t afford to repair the windshield and correct the significant mechanical problems on the 200,000-plus kilometer cube van.

After the incident was noted in the local paper, businesses banded together to replace a smashed-in windshield and broken transmission for basic or no costs.

You know you have a community when it takes care of its own.
