FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The community of Fort St. John continues to pull together for those that have been hit by wildfires in the Central Interior.
Moose FM along with The Phoenix Volunteer Club, Willys Trucking, Safeway, Sun FM and The Bear held day one on Thursday of accepting donations that will be delivered to the emergency centre in Prince George.
From 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, volunteers have been on site collecting donations as well as cash and cheques that will go to the Red Cross.
Jeanette Johnston with the Phoenix Volunteer Club estimates that almost $6,000 dollars has been raised. 150-200 people have contributed whether that be through donating money or other items that are needed.
Volunteers will once again be on site on Friday, also from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Safeway parking lot.
If you are unable to come down to Safeway to drop something off, you can still donate online by visiting: https://secure.redcross.ca/registrant/donate.aspx?eventid=225939&langpref=en-CA.
