FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Fort St. John Salvation Army set themselves a goal of $65,000 for their annual kettle drive. When we last spoke to them before Christmas, they had reached roughly half of that goal, with around $35,000.
Captain Sheldon Feener with the Salvation Army told Energetic City today that their drive made $104,000 in total after wrapping up in December for the holiday season.
“We couldn’t do it without the community because they’re the ones that support us, they’re the ones that dig deep every time they see the kettle out there,” said Feener. “It’s incredible.”
Over 40,000 pounds of food have also been donated, as well as many toys for their hampers.
