Dawson Creek has it's first 18 Wheels!

For the first time, the 18 Wheels Of Christmas trailer made an appearance in the City Of Dawson Creek BC! On Saturday, November 17th, 2012, we partnered up with NEAT (Northern Environmental Action Team) and CJDC for an exciting day at the Canada Safeway store in Dawson Creek. This is an annual event put on by CJDC and we were honoured and privileged to be invited to partner up with them.

Despite frigid temperatures, the generous folks in Dawson Creek donated 1500 lbs of food for our local Salvation Army Food Bank. CJDC was on site all day doing radio promotions while our local Rosenau staff braved the frigid temperatures and filled the trailer.

On Monday November 19th, we brought the food over to the Food Bank and helped fill many empty shelves and created a few smiles.

I would sincerely like to thank our Rosenau staff who donated their time and helped out on collection day. Brandon Jensen, David Pelle, Bruce Sydnam, Molly Watson, Harold Modahl, Aron and Tracy Threinen.

I would also like to thank the terrific folks at N.E.A.T. and Greg Evans and all the people over at CJDC. It was fun and we are looking forward to building it even bigger and better for next year!

We are off to Ft. St. John for Saturday November 24th, 2012 for another first, collecting at the Home Hardware store. We will update you as soon as that event wraps up.

Then the trailer will be making it's way down to Edmonton and Calgary for some exciting events down there!
