‘Unstoppable good will’: Canucks fans rush to aid of single mother after house fire
A Port Moody single mother who lost most of her belongings in a house fire on Friday has been overwhelmed by the Vancouver Canucks’ community coming to her aid.
Hayley Peeling was flooded with food, clothing, toiletries and toys at her hotel room Saturday afternoon — all from people she’s never met.
While those stepping forward with donations do not know the mother personally, they are all part of Canucks’ vocal fan base on Twitter.
“Hayley is shocked,” said Isabella Brouse, a Lower Mainland fan who befriended Peeling last year after the two bonded online over the team.
“To go from being a single mother raising her two kids without much support to being showered with it — she’s just beside herself that all these people care.”
