NGC Com­pres­sion So­lu­tions and the char­ity In­spire are reach­ing out to adopt fam­i­lies dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son, and there seemed to be no bet­ter fit than the Boon fam­ily in Drumheller.

On Au­gust 18, tragedy rocked the young fam­ily when 31-year-old Tyler Boon, who had been strug­gling with chronic health is­sues, passed away. This left his wife Shan­nel Boon alone to raise three young chil­dren, ages rang­ing from 2 to 11. Need­less to say, it has been a tough few months for the fam­ily. The com­mu­nity has shown sup­port and ear­lier this year sup­port­ers held a fundraiser, raf­fling off two sides of beef.

Jamie Wor­man knew full well of Shan­nel’s plight and when he learned about NGC Com­pres­sion’s Adopt a Fam­ily pro­gram from lo­cal branch ser­vice man­ager Dale Telford he put the wheels in ac­tion. On Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 21, Pres­i­dent and CEO of NGC Com­pres­sion So­lu­tions Shane Guilt­ner and Alyssa Guilt­ner of In­spire, a non­profit that NGC works with, pre­sented a gift pack­age to the young fam­ily.

Shan­nel is very ap­pre­cia­tive of the do­na­tion. “When Jamie told me, it kind of blew me away. He’s a pil­lar to the com­mu­nity,” said Shan­nel.

Shane Guilt­ner says each year the com­pany adopts fam­i­lies in com­mu­ni­ties in which it op­er­ates, in­clud­ing Cal­gary, Drumheller, Stet­tler and Fort St. John.
