“Be an Angel” campaign raises over $195,000


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation’s “Be an Angel” campaign raised over $195,000 this year.

The money helps purchase medical equipment for the Fort St. John Hospital and Peace Villa Residential Care Facility to improve patient care. 

People had the opportunity to donate in many ways throughout November including at Financial Institutions and the “Be an Angel” gala which kicked off the campaign on November 5th.

FSJ Hospital Foundation Executive Director, Gord Klassen says the foundation is extremely grateful for the donations from the people of Fort St. John.

“We are so grateful to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who have, once again, stepped up and generously given their time and resources to help make this year’s “Be An Angel” Campaign such a success! We are humbled by the continued support of our community. Together, we are undoubtedly making a difference in the lives of patients in Fort St. John.”

While the campaign has ended, the Foundation says they usually receive additional donations mailed in from the invitations to give throughout December. That will increase the total raised towards the campaign.
