Thanks to the generosity of the folks in Ft. St. John BC and especially our hosts at Home Hardware, our first collection day here was a success! Once again, we partnered with N.E.A.T. While they were in the store doing their Christmas Light Exchange, we were outside collecting donations and handing out coupons for the Home Hardware Store for every donation!
It was a bit frigid out there but thanks to an endless supply of Tim Horton's coffee, we made it through the day. Chris, Karen and Brandon made the trip up from Dawson Creek and spent the day at The Home Hardware Store in Fort St. John BC. The day was not without it's difficulties however, we started our day off by getting stuck in some deep snow. Luckily Alec from the Ft. St. John Terminal showed up with a tow rope and gave us a little tug and got us rolling again.
There was another tense moment when The Grinch showed up, threatening to deprive us of our hard earned Food Donations!
Well, we are getting the trailer polished up and ready to make the trek back down south for some exciting 18 Wheels events down in Edmonton and Calgary. Good Luck guys and we can't wait for next year to make it even bigger and better!
