Delivering the Goods

Prince George, B.C. – The Food for Fare program in Prince George wrapped last week, and this morning, Mayor Lyn Hall, Susan Scott and P.G. Transit Delivery Manager Jeff Waters delivered the goods.
The annual three day event lets people board P.G. Transit buses for no cash if the passenger makes a donation of a non perishable food item.
Three boxes of food from that program were delivered this morning to the Salvation Army.
While donations were down from past programs, the air quality advisory may have had an impact on reduced donations as P.G. Transit offers free rides to all during such air quality events. Still, every little bit helps.
The Salvation Army has prepared nearly 400 hampers to be delivered to the less fortunate this Christmas, and the donations of food will help stock up the food bank.
