FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Spark! Women’s Leadership Conference made a cheque presentation on Tuesday July 12th to the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Centre.
The conference was held earlier this year, instead of speaker gifts, Spark! was able to make a $1500 donation to the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Centre’s Dress for Success program.
The program provides support as well as clothing for women that are looking to get back into the workforce.
Since many residents are facing challenges from the current economic situation, the steering committee decided to up the donation this year and provide another $1500 to the poverty outreach store in the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Centre that requires on-going funding.
The last couple of months have seen a increase of those seeking help.
The centre is always in need of donations: nonperishable food items, clothing, household items, hygiene products, and volunteers as they always strive to help everyone that walks through the door.
2016 marked the 3rd time the Spark! Women’s Leadership Conference was held in the area.
