The Greenville Swamp Rabbits have joined in on the fundraising efforts for those affected by a deadly bus accident involving the Humboldt Broncos junior league hockey team.

The team was headed to the town of Nipawin in Canada for a playoff game when the crash between a tractor-trailer and the bus carrying the team took place, killing 15, per officials.

On Saturday, the Swamp Rabbits said Humboldt resident Sylvie Wellington created a GoFundMe to give back to the affected families. That fundraiser can be found here. By Sunday, the fundraiser had over $3,800,000 in donations.

The Swamp Rabbits said during the team's game against the Atlanta Gladiators Saturday night, they will observe a moment of silence for the victims, survivors and families connected to the crash before the game. Those in attendance will also be asked to join together in singing the Canadian National Anthem.

Proceeds from a post-game jersey auction and a pair of team signed sticks will benefit the Bronco's fundraising efforts. The team is also selling new and used player equipment, merchandise and game-worn jerseys during the team's annual locker room sale on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Swamp Rabbits player Bretton Cameron said on Twitter his brother Graysen Cameron was one of the player's injured in the crash. Via Twitter, he said his brother was recovering in the hospital after the crash.

Cameron shared a photo on Monday of Graysen Cameron in the hospital.

Words can’t describe how fortunate I am for the hockey world. Everyone that has reached out and also helped me get to my brother so quickly. The love has poured in to Graysen and my family. He can’t thank everyone enough for all the support so far #prayforhumboldt pic.twitter.com/ypKqnOQQyg— Bretton Cameron (@Bcamo) April 9, 2018

On April 12, CNN reported that a forensic expert suggested the tractor trailer involved in the crash did not stop at a stop sign. The investigation is ongoing.
