The conditional funding will provide accommodation assistance for Northern BC and East Kootenay children who require special medical care in Alberta.

According to Kelly Sharp, General Manager of the Northern BC Friends of Children Society “the extra funds are greatly appreciated, complimenting the general donations Friends of Children need to support the travel, accommodations and food expenses related to the Northern BC and East Kootenay child’s medical appointment.”

Sharp also stressed that “general donations are the lifeline to Friends of Children overall services.”

Friends of Children recently assisted their 1,000 Northern BC client since the creation of the Prince George based children’s charity.
