Dene town responds with generosity, despair in wake of school shooting
For the past three days, phones have been ringing off the hook at CHPN 89.9 FM — the Dene Voice of La Loche, as its sign proclaims proudly.
Announcers at the little radio station on the top floor of the La Loche arena have been on the air tirelessly, hosting a fundraiser for the victims of last week's violent shootings.
A steady stream of community members come and go, arms loaded with donated items for the auction: quilts, homemade pies, video games. I heard someone even donated an ATV.
