A gentleman went to Vancouver on business recently and accidentally left his wallet on the ferry. He drove home to Gibsons and realized his mistake, so he rushed back to the terminal where an honest, kind BC Ferries employee had found it and kept it safe for him.
The man tried to offer the employee a reward, but the honest employee refused. The following day, in honour of the great staff at BC Ferries, the man put $20 in the Salvation Army kettle at Sunnycrest Mall. Thank you, kind sir, and kudos to BC Ferries for their helpfulness!
The Salvation Army wishes to thank citizens of the Sunshine Coast for your amazing support.
You may have noticed vacancies at a few of our locations, particularly at Canadian Tire. We seem to be low in number of volunteers and would be delighted to fill the remaining shifts with cheery volunteers.
It is a great opportunity for family volunteering. Most locations permit singing and playing of instruments, and some even allow dogs to “volunteer” with their pet parent!
Christmas is a very busy season for most people. If a two-hour shift is too much to cram into your schedule, there are options using modern technology such as text to donate or the online fill the kettle campaign (where you can either host a virtual kettle or give to one).
