Four Rivers Co-op donates almost $2,000 to Salvation Army

Vanderhoof residents helped raise the cash for the local branch of the charity on Good Fuel Day

Four Rivers Co-op donated a total of $1,861.96 after its Fuel Good Day on Sept. 18, 2018.

Fuel Good Day is a promotion at Co-op Gas Bars. This year, Four Rivers Co-op partnered with the Salvation Army to donate 10¢ for ever litre of fuel sold as well as 100 per cent of the proceeds from the barbecue that was operated by the Salvation Army that day.

“We are always amazed by how our community comes out to support events such as our Fuel Good Day,” said Allan Bieganski, general manager of Four Rivers Co-op. “Without the generosity of the people that live in our communities, this donation would not be possible. Your fuel and food purchase on Sept. 18 has helped a wonderful organization that is new to Vanderhoof.”

“We are so pleased to be in partnership with all of the wonderful people at Four Rivers Co-op,” said Bill Glasgow, Donor Relations & Fund Raising Coordinator for the Salvation Army. “Together with thousands of local citizens we can all feel good about Fuel Good Day. It is partnerships like this that prove that when we work together, wonderful things can happen. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.”
