Community comes together to help Simard

Golden residents are coming together to help Isabelle Simard.

Golden residents are doing what they can to help Isabelle Simard who suffered injuries after being attacked by two dogs.

According to Leslie Adams who is a friend of Simard’s, many people were trying to find out how they could help her.

“A lot of people in the community have been contacting Isabelle’s friends including me to ask about making donations so we decided to set up an account,” Adams said.

She went on to say there are many reasons why so many people have been wanting to help.

“Isabelle runs a small business and hasn’t been able to work for two weeks and can anticipate not being back full time right away.  She also has two teenagers (one son and one daughter) to feed, her mobility will be limited for a few weeks so help with meals will be needed and a big help.”

Adams stressed the outpouring of support from the community has been wonderful.

“This community is amazing at helping out in a crisis. Isabelle is a friendly and caring person and the community is responding to her in a big way. We all pull together when the going gets tough,” she said.

To get more information people can email (or find Adams on facebook). People interested in helping can also drop off donations at Numbers and Letters or as of Monday there will be a fundraising account at CIBC in Isabelle’s name.
