NSSCR Truck and Equipment Stolen By Jo Anne Malpass A white 2010 F150 filled with an assortment of equipment needed to operate swimming lessons in the lake was stolen from the North and South Shuswap Community Resources (NSSCR) during the night of July 6. The NSSCR is a non-profit group which provides a network of programs and services to enhance the lives of children, youth and families living in the North and South Shuswap. By the end of July, the truck and equipment had not been returned but NSSCR was able to quickly replace a lot of the equipment thanks to the generosity of the community. “We are feeling so fortunate to live in such a kind community,” said the NSSCR Coordinator. Donations included a dingy from Shuswap Marina, a Gofundme account that raised $340, a $500 donation from a generous community member/parent and the swim equipment used about 10 years ago for Carlin/ Sunnybrae lessons. The NSSCR Coordinator said there has been limited impact to the swim lesson participants because the strong instructors were able to adapt and continue. “What's unfortunate about the loss is the cost to the NSSCR. Our Swim Program creates a financial foundation for the association that allows us to run other programs throughout the year. We were already adapting this year because of the struggle we had finding instructors and the insurance requirements to run lessons in the lake. So it's frustrating because there will likely be a loss to the community in the form of less programming.”
