The Wild fires in Northern Alberta are hitting home for a couple of Okotoks residents.

Owner of the Sundara Ethical Boutique, Jessica Hood is collecting donations of bedding and toiletries to send to the Edmonton Emergency Relief Society, which is providing services to people who have been displaced by the fires.

She says she had to do something.

Hood says people can drop off blankets, sheets, pillows and other items at their location at 11 Elma Street in down town Okotoks.

She says they hope to make a shipment on Wednesday and one again on Friday.
