P.G. FireFighters in Your Stocking?
Prince George members of International Association of Fire Fighters Members Local 1372, beefed it up, and showed it off for a 2017 fundraiser calendar. With sponsorship sales paying for the printing of the calendar, all dollars raised from calendar sales go to paying for the Prince George suite at the new Burn Fund centre in Vancouver.
The new centre is a home away from home from those recovering from, or receiving treatment for burn injuries.
To say the calendar has been selling like hot cakes would be an understatement. 1500 were printed, and campaign coordinator Bryan Burleigh says they have been a good seller “We had done a calendar in previous years and that effort was successful, but we were pretty sure the 2017 version would hit the mark”. And hit the mark they did as Burleigh says there are just 100 left “At this point, they are only available at Save-On and Canadian Tire.” But with this being one of the last shopping days before Christmas, the calendar just might make for a perfect stocking stuffer in addition to helping a worthwhile cause.
