Help fill the truck in Fort St. John for those devastated by fires in B.C.


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Moose FM, The Phoenix Volunteer Club, Willy’s Trucking and Safeway have teamed up to help those in need from the devastation of the wildfires in the Central Interior.

If you are looking to help those impacted by the fires, there will be the chance to do so this week.

The event will take place from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday at the Safeway Parking Lot. Just look for the Willy’s Trucking Trailer.
Moose FM will be live on location for both days broadcasting each show from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Donations will also be accepted in the form of cash and cheques to the Red Cross.

Below is a list of the items that will be accepted and are in need of:

  • Non- Perishable Food
  • New Pillows
  • Diapers- all sizes
  • Baby Wipes
  • Toilet paper
  • Garbage Bags
  • Sanitary Pads- all sizes
  • Tampons- all sizes
  • Hand Soap
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Boxes of Kleenex
  • Adult Diapers- all sizes
  • Tooth Brushes
  • Tooth Paste
  • Shampoo
  • Baby Shampoo
  • Body Wash
  • Baby Wash
  • Band Aids
  • Polysporin
  • Alcohol Wipes
  • Tensor Bandages
  • Gauze
  • Pet Kennels- sizes
  • Cat Litter
  • Litter Pans – aluminum trays work great too
  • Pet food
  • Boxes to store these items for shipping
 Jeanette Johnston with the Phoenix Volunteer Club says that the club wants to give back to others, especially those who have gone through such a devastating situation.
“Everyone feels good when they can help out.. Not everyone has the means, the time or the resources to drive down to Prince George or to Kamloops to drop off these items but collectively, if each person dropped off a box of diapers or a case of wipes or a box of Kraft Dinner or whatever it is, I think that each of us collectively can do our little part. It was us last year, we were in this situation and luckily, Fort St. John was not evacuated but we were on standby and that was very scary.”
