FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Co-Op’s Fuel Good Day raised over $1,000 for the Fort St. John Firefighters Charitable Society.
Residents who filled up at the 100th Steet gas bar on September 20th helped to raise $1,303.38 this past Fuel Good Day.
Donations came from the 10 cents per litre of gas and diesel sold. During the event, a dollar from every car wash, coffee, slushie, and ice cream sold also went towards the donation.
This year the money goes to the Fort St. John Firefighters Charitable Society. Members of the organization were out in the sun to help pump gas and top up fluids. They also brought out fire engine 1 for a photo opportunity.
Local firefighter Kyle Rempel says that the event was a success and an awesome event overall. Rempel says that it’s local events like this that help their organizations keep doing what they do.
