“The Salvation Army Food Bank shelves are generally running low this time of year,” says Fire Chief Erick Peterson. “The Williams Lake Fire Department is once again asking the community to help bring ‘Christmas in July’ to those that rely on the Food Bank by donating non-perishable food items for us to deliver to the Salvation Army.”

Residents who would like to participate are asked to place their donations at their front door for the firefighters to collect on July 30th. Donations can also be dropped off at the Fire Hall between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. July 30th – August 2nd.
