FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Salvation Army Food Bank recently celebrated their one year anniversary of a partnership with the local Walmart.
January 25th marked the anniversary of the partnership, which has seen Walmart donate 51 pallets of products including food, toilet paper, and material goods with a value of $43,000 The items are then distributed into the community through the local Food Bank and Family Services Program.
“It’s a pallet per week really,” said Executive Director Cameron Eggie. “Wal-mart has a holding space for items that they ship over to us for the cause. If they have a product for instance that isn’t selling they will send it over our way.”
The next skid is scheduled to be delivered to the Salvation Army next Tuesday.
