In late 2015, Grey Owl held a fundraising initiative in support of Shelter Canada, a charity dedicated to building homes in El Salvador. El Salvador has been crippled by earthquakes and recent civil wars, rendering a third of its six million people living on $1 a day with many forced to live without the basic necessities of life. Shelter Canada seeks to provide solid, secure, and safe homes for families in need. Grey Owl donated $3,300 and with the help of Fernie based home builder, Elk River Mountain Homes, built a house for a family in February 2016. This family in need was living in sewage infested mud plots due to the extreme rainfall 6 months of the year. We are happy to report that the family is incredibly grateful for their new house, and we hope to continue such initiatives in the future!
