Fernie Care-A-Van is accepting food donations in the hopes of filling the brand new white Dodge Caravan currently parked outside the Fernie Memorial Arena.

The vehicle is sitting in the parking lot of the Fernie Memorial Arena, waiting to be filled with food donations from those able to give.

For the first time, Dodge got in contact with Marty Williams, Equipment Manager of the Fernie Jr. Ghostriders Adams A team and asked if they could partner in support of the local food bank. Without delay, Williams agreed.

“It all came together really quickly,” said Williams. “This is just to help the families in need over Christmas.”

For every upcoming Ghostrider home game, the Caravan will be parked and ready to receive donations. With many upcoming tournaments for both the Junior B Ghostriders and the Adams A, a lot of traffic could result in a plethora of donations.

The goal is to fill this van before the middle of December, so that those less fortunate in the area of Fernie can receive the necessities for their families this Christmas.

Anyone with food donations can drop them off at the Fernie Memorial Arena.
