FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Mayor Lori Ackerman and Council declared September as “United Way Northern BC Month” at the City Council meeting on Monday.

United Way gave a presentation to City Council about how Fort St. John is struggling to keep up with the demand of clientele they are seeing, from the bad economy as of late.

These are the following numbers that show the alarming rate of clientele coming in:

  • Salvation Army (food related only): 1653
  •  FSJ Women’s Resource Society (outreach): 492
  •  FSJ Friendship Society (food bus): 1301

That is 3,446 people in Fort St. John using those resources.

United Way has also been raising awareness and education about these issues. They recently held an event in the park to show how many people in one month came to use their services.

They also will have the Fire Truck Pull on September 17th where they will be also holding a food drive to get more donations for the centres that truly need them.
