Community Point of Pride

On December 12th, 2018, the unthinkable happended for Yolanda Hopkins and her family. They were driving along the ice-covered Highway 22 when their truck lost traction and landed upside-down in the freezing Santiam River. Their truck was totaled, but thankfully the family was able to walk away with only minor scrapes and bruises. They also lost nearly all of their possessions that they had been traveling with, including several cell phones, laptops, and wallets. Badly shaken, soaking wet and freezing, they were taken to the Idanha fire station for warmth and to await the tow truck and a ride home. While they were waiting, one of our firefighters contacted Mt High Grocery in Detroit to check on the availability of dry clothing for the family. 

Not only did Mt. High Grocery have clothing available for them, but Dean O'Donnell, who owns the store, decided to donate brand-new sweatpants, sweatshirts, t-shirts, socks, shoes, and even some coffee and hot cocoa to the family.

The family's youngest two children had been riding with a family friend in his vehicle, which had been following behind Yolanda and the others. They witnessed the truck lose control and then roll over the embankment and out of sight. "It was like slow motion. My heart just stopped," the friend recalls of the incident. 

Idanha-Detroit RFPD would like to sincerely thank Mr. O'Donnell and the rest of the staff at Mt. High
Grocery for their generous donation. Your sense of care and willingness to help others in need goes above and beyond expectaions. Thank you!
