FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Over $7,700 has been raised for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.

On Saturday, July 25, COBS Bread, of Fort St. John, held a ‘Community Day’ where they were raising funds from the sales of bread and other treats to go towards the Hospital Foundation’s ‘Greatest Needs Fund’.

During the event, it was reported that even some customers paid it forward with one customer paying $200 worth of bread for the next customers to get theirs for free.

According to Hospital Foundation Resource Development and Event Coordinator, Asuncion Sta. Maria, this event was a good testament of community collaboration.

“The event was a good testament of community collaboration where businesses and non-profits partner to benefit the Fort St. John community.”

The funds raised, a total of $7,777, for the ‘Greatest Needs Fund’ will help the Hospital to better respond to the critical healthcare needs and capacity at any given time.
