Port Edward's Cassiar Cannery is taking on the task of organization for an upcoming auction to help out Prince Rupert Search and Rescue to raise funds for their local operations on the North Coast.
The folks out at Cassiar were so impressed with the dedication of the local ground based search and rescue group during a search in recent weeks that they have decided to help bring the community together to help provide some support for the group to purchase some additional items towards their service in the community.
The list of items to be donated is growing and show the support that the Search and Rescue group have in the community for their efforts.
You can examine the list to this point and learn more about the fundraising from the public group Facebook page that has been formed to help with the project. The deadline to offer up contributions of donated goods for the auction is February 15.
It's anticipated that the goods will be put up for silent auction at an event sometime later in the New Year.
