A local insurance company is giving a helping hand to five families in Fort St. John.

Hub International Barton Insurance raised more than $2,000 to purchase gifts and groceries for the families.

Each family was chosen through the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Hub Barton reviewed each family’s request and decided to sponsor the ones that have had the hardest year.

As a part of the insurance companies, "HUB GIVES" program, staff members held an Open House on December fourth, and asked for donations for each family.

The office staff agreed that Christmas was not complete without gifts for the children, so each member reached into their own pockets to provide a special gift for each child.
