Smokie to the Rescue – BBQ Fundraiser

June 9 @ 11:00 am June 11 @ 4:30 pm

#PrinceGeorge, we are coming back this month with our monthly BBQ Fundraiser – Smokie to the Rescue sponsored by KMS Tools and Equipment!

From June 9th – June 11th, between 11:00 am to 4:30 pm, the staff and volunteers from United Way of Northern BC (UWNBC) will be serving smokies and pop outside KMS Tools & Equipment- 101 Queensway, Prince George, BC – V2L 0B5.

#PrinceGeorge continues to show an incredible amount of support to this fundraiser, and we are grateful to everyone who has supported this initiative so far. Please continue to show your #locallove and join us to have a smokie/hotdog for lunch. Your donations will go towards supporting the social service programming in #PrinceGeorge.

The nonprofits providing social services have been hit the hardest during the pandemic, and the aftereffects are even worse. While the generosity of our people and communities across Northern BC has been incredible over the last year, the pandemic has marked a steep decline in fundraising proceeds. The funding continues to see a downward trend, and the need has grown to the point never seen before. To ensure that we can continue to support the local nonprofit agencies in the greatest possible way, we are working hard to find new ways to fill the gaps and fulfill our mission of connecting resources with local needs.

‘Smokie to the Rescue!’ will help with our ongoing fight against the challenges the most vulnerable face in the Prince George community, whether a result of the pandemic or an ongoing issue. We are here to meet the challenge and do what is needed to provide the much-needed support to our agency partners and ultimately make way for positive change right here in Prince George.

This fundraiser has been made possible by KMS Tools and Equipment. Their continuous support and commitment to serving the local community are inspiring and greatly appreciated.

Please come to KMS Tools & Equipment and get your smokie and pop by donation to help us raise funds to support local social service programming.
