Campion Boats Extends A Helping Hand To Kelowna Camper Business After Fire


When a Kelowna, BC business building pickup truck campers caught fire, it was a Kelowna neighbour who extended a helping hand to keep the 40 person business in business to make their spring deliveries.

Campion president, Brock Elliott was driving to work when he saw the smoke from the burning camper truck factory fire. 

The factory roof had collapsed and it was clear that the business was destroyed. Elliott left a message for the business owner to contact him and that Campion Boats could help. Those who know Brock Elliott will not be surprised at the generous gesture.

Other area businesses also pitched in. It’s a great story about neighbours and community. Have  look at the newspaper story that ran in the Kelowna Daily Courier:
