North Coast residents and businesses responding to Salvation Army Renovation campaign

Keep a close eye on thermometer on the outer wall of CityHall, for there should soon be more updward momentum to be seen as Prince Rupert businesses and residents respond to the community campaign to help the Salvation Army raise funds towards renovations for the Grenville Court facility,

Last week we noted the launch of the campaign, which saw Northern Savings Credit Union provide for the thermometer for City Hall, with the city accepting donations from the public, as well as to provide the first 15,000 o the 95,000 dollar goal through a Community Enhancement Grant.

The Salvation Army is looking to raise the funds to renovate the Grenville Court facility and to bring their Food Bank program under the same roof.

Since the City announcement of its support for the project, donations have come in big and small with the City making note of the success to date through their Social media account.

Last Week the District of Port Edward outlined its support for the program,  while also sharing some updates on the fundraising is the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce which tracked this donation from Entire Automotive Services

If you wish to contribute as well, you can share your support at City Hall.

Donations towards the Food Bank Upgrade project can be made at the front desk of City Hall, with receipts provided to donors by the Salvation Army. 

Please note that although drop ins at City Hall are accommodated, due to limited access to the customer service area, to ensure timely service it is recommended to book an appointment by calling (250) 627 0934.
