The Fort St. John Huskies held their annual Fill the Bus event and it set a new high for food raised for the Salvation Army. Nearly 27,000 pounds of food will be going towards the Salvation Army and it’s hoped the amount will last close up to summer.

Huskies general manager Jeremy Clothier said a huge thanks needs to go out to the volunteers who help in making the event what it is year after year.

“The event wouldn’t happen without the work of the volunteers. We’ve got some parents of kids that played seven years ago still helping out. They show up every year to help pack groceries, help sort groceries, help collect groceries so without them it’s not as successful as what it is,” he said.

The biggest contribution came from Morgan Construction who filled a rock truck full of items to go towards the campaign.

“It was just an opportunity to get involved with the community. Morgan Construction, we’re a very socially responsible company. It’s about $15,000 worth of groceries there. It was just the right thing to do,” said one of the project controllers of the Site C dam Doug Morgan.

Last year’s Fill the Bus total was 20,000 pounds.
