The Williams Lake Fire Department’s Christmas in July food drive just keeps growing each year.
“We collected five pickup trucks worth of donations,” Fire Chief Des Webster said, noting they could have collected more but ran out of time. “It grows every year.”
Responding the Salvation Army’s (SA) care-worker Greg Silvey said the generosity of Williams Lake never ceases to amaze him.
“It’s unbelievable. We have more than last year,” echoed Webster.
