Smokie to the Rescue – BBQ Fundraiser
August 12 @ 9:00 am – August 14 @ 4:00 pm
Prince George, we are back yet again with our fundraising BBQ – ‘Smokie to the rescue’ to raise funds to support local non-profit agencies that work to fight predominant #unignorable issues in our community!
From August 12th – August 14th, between 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, the staff and volunteers from United Way of Northern BC (UWNBC) serving smokies and pop, FREE or by donation outside KMS Tools & Equipment- 101 Queensway, Prince George, BC – V2L 0B5.
We are so grateful for the response we have had so far from the community of Prince George to this initiative. Last month, we raised just over $2,350, which is so far the highest amount raised in a month through this initiative, thanks to our wonderful donors, supporters, and volunteers for their unwavering and continuous support.
This month our goal is to surpass previous months’ records, and we request you to continue to show your #locallove and be a part of the change in the local community.
The pandemic has adversely affected fundraising across the non-profit sector, and UWNBC has been no different. 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. To ensure that we can continue to support the local non-profit 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 get support to our agency partners and ultimately make way for positive change right here in Prince George.
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.
