Local mayor raising money to sponsor Syrian family

The North Bay community is coming together to help with the ongoing humanitarian crises in Syria.

North Bay Mayor Al McDonald and his wife have set up a sponsor group of local citizens to help bring a family of four Syrian refugees to Ontario. In less than a week, $10,000 has been raised towards the cause.

McDonald says it was the picture of the 3-year-old drowned Syrian boy that hit home. The cost of sponsoring a family of four is $27,000. So far over 58 individuals have donated.
