Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Canadian Grind donated $9,000 to the Legion from their poppy donut campaign, serving around 3,360 donuts.

Owner of The Candian Grind, Lynette Cordonier, handed Legion member, Mike King, a cheque on Friday with the results from the 280 dozen donuts sold.

Cordonier and her staff weren’t the only ones working hard to make the fundraiser successful, as there were volunteers behind the scenes that helped create the donuts sold.

Cordonier confirmed that the fundraiser will take place again next year and thanked the community for supporting the Legion.

“I’ve always said a community is always made better by the people that live in it. This is one of those examples of what I truly believe about why we’re here in the community and what we do,” said Cordonier.

King expressed a similar sentiment thanking the community for the great turnout at the Remembrance Day ceremony.

“The Legion is in a serious situation but no more than anywhere else. Everybody has had to accept less because of the situation we were put in. It’s great to get this kind of donation for the Legion, it really needs it,” said King.

This was the second year the business decided to sell the donuts for the Legion, with $5,000 being raised last year.
