Last fall, the Love You campaign gave residents the opportunity to donate to the Foundation by purchasing a paper leaf, apple, butterfly, or bird that was then displayed in the store.
Of the $32,495 that was donated, $16,280 was raised through raffles of flight vouchers anywhere WestJet flies, donated by WestJet. These raffles took place in September and October of 2016, and thanks to WestJet were very popular in the community.
Shoppers Drug Mart in Fort St. John again takes the bragging rights for highest amount of funds raised during the month long campaign nationwide for the second year in a row.
All donations to the Love You campaign were directed to the Foundation’s Eastern Star Children’s Fund. This fund helps purchase medical equipment for expecting mothers, children, and babies at the Fort St. John Hospital.
