A sea of bags is cluttering the Western Financial Group in Fort St. John.

But Branch Manager Connie Sall says she doesn’t mind.

The Western Financial Group’s "Good Night, Sleep Tight" PJ Campaign for kids is an enormous success.

After a $10,000 donation from head office, Sall says the branch continues to get donations towards its $40,000 goal.

Workers have already purchased enough PJ’s, hard-covered books and toothbrushes to donate more than 260 kits to area shelters.

Sall says enough money has been raised to purchase 250 more.

Once the nightlights arrive, the first shipment of bags will go to the Women’s Resource Centre.

Sall says she believes that the Western Financial Group will surpass its goal of 1,000 bags by September.
