Local Business Sending Love And Pins To Humboldt

A local business is doing what it can to support the people of Humboldt, Saskatchewan.

Silver Stitch Embroidery started off by making 100 pins to send to the small rural town, grieving after the tragic bus crash which killed 15 people including members of the Broncos junior hockey team.

When photos of the pins were posted on Facebook, owner Karen Cichon says she was inundated with requests.

"We're all one big family," Cichon tells CTV Windsor, "We're Canada and hopefully we can help them be strong."

Cichon says she has since designed a second pin as well as a jersey patch and will be selling them with all proceeds going towards the Humboldt 'Go Fund Me' page. 

School officials in Humboldt, Saskatchewan had a response team in place for students returning to class Tuesday for the first time since the deadly bus crash.
