Smokies for Back to School – BBQ Fundraiser

September 16 @ 9:30 am September 18 @ 4:00 pm

Prince George, we are back again with the KMS Tools BBQ Fundraiser to raise funds to support local non-profit agencies that fight predominant #unignorable issues in our community!
From September 16th – September 18th, between 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, the United Way of Northern BC (UWNBC) staff and volunteers will be serving smokies and pop outside KMS Tools & Equipment- 101 Queensway, Prince George, BC – V2L 0B5.

This month’s theme is ‘Back to School’, and folks who get a smokie can enter their names in the draw to win gift cards worth $25 each from Mastercard, Domino’s Pizza, Sport Chek, Walmart, and DavidsTea.

We are so grateful for the response we have had so far from the community of PG to this fund BBQ event (happens during KMSTools monthly 3-day sale!). Last month, we raised just over $2,590, which is, so far, the highest amount raised in a month through this initiative. A HUGE THANKS! to our wonderful donors, supporters, and volunteers for their unwavering and continuous support.

This month our goal is to continue at that amazing level of proceeds…and we hope for your help to get there! Show your #locallove and be a part of the change in the local community just by coming by for a smokie and making a donation!

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.

The KMS Tools BBQ fundraiser 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.
