Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with two fundraisers next month.

Starting February 1st, the Women’s Resource 40 years and $40,000 Challenge will begin. According to Becky Belle, co-chair on the board, the organization is looking for 40 different businesses or sponsors to donate $1,000 a day for 40 days for this fundraiser. Those who donated will be recognized as a ‘Donor of the Day’ and will be highlighted on media outlets in FSJ.

With the funds raised, the Women’s Resource Society is looking to replace the roof of their office building.

The second fundraiser, also put on by Belle, is a Mexican cooking class available via Zoom. The cost is $55, plus the cost of supplies, which includes tequila sangria, salsa, guacamole, tacos, and a dessert. The cooking class will take place on February 26th.

The Women’s Resource Society has been working to build a foundation to empower and advocate for women, children, and low-income clients since 1981.
