Give a Little, Get a Lot More at Christmas
Prince George, B.C. – The Northern Sport Centre (NSC) kicked off its annual Give a Little, Get a Lot holiday campaign at the Parkwood Save-On-Foods this afternoon.
Since the campaign started in 2009, it has raised much needed non-perishable food items and clothing for the Salvation Army, NUGSS Food Bank and the UNBC Women’s Shelter.
This year $2,500 has been donated by individuals and businesses which were put towards a mass grocery shop today.
Surjit Minhas was on hand after getting the ball rolling with a $500 donation of his own.
“My motto is the purpose of life is life with a purpose,” he said. “And that purpose is live for others, we cannot help everyone in this world but everyone can help someone.”
Afterwards, PG Motors supplied a couple of vehicles to deliver the food to its proper destinations.
“You can’t step away from something like this,” said Ron Gallo. “You get asked to help out with families that are in need at this time of the year and you do what you can.”
Other donors for the event included Save-On-Foods ($500), NSC ($500), and Shawn Stewart ($1,000).
