On Saturday 6/8/2019 the Roughriders went and met Kori and her son.
Kori woke up one morning and found that her car had been vandalized with estimated damages of over $6,000.00 and a $1,000.00 deductible. She could not drive her car to drop off her child at daycare or summer school or get herself to work. The vandalizm happened by mistake as it was meant for another person. Police are tracking down the people who did this BUT this single mom needed some help.
So the Roughriders gave her a check to pay her deductible.
