POWELL RIVER, B.C.- Strong community support helped raise more than $43,000 for the Powell River Action Food Bank, beating last year’s fundraising total of $36,000.
The fundraising initiative was a joint effort between 95.7 Coast FM, Safeway and City Transfer.
Donations were collected to stuff a 36-foot City Transfer trailer for the local food bank. The project was a part of Vista Radio’s (Coast FM’s parent company) Million Dollar Charity Week.
As part of Vista’s company-wide initiative, over $1-million was raised.
