Sally Ann Christmas donations 'unbelievable'


The Fort St. John Salvation Army Christmas Drive has been declared a success.

The Salvation Army brought in a total of $189,934 from both the Christmas kettles and the mail order that is done every year, says Captain Ben Lippers.

Although Lippers says the Sally Ann’s goal was $200,000 to make up for a pre-Christmas general donation shortage, he is still very happy with the final results.

He says the community has been extremely generous and the support for the nonprofit organization’s cause is overwhelming.

Furthermore, he says the organization received more food donations than normal and describes the community support as ‘unbelievable’.
