Grad Committee donates leftover funds to food bank

Approximately $3,650 was donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank in Fernie

Recent graduates from Fernie Secondary School were on hand July 28, 2020 to make a generous donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The 2020 Grad Committee had approximately $3,650 in leftover funds after this year’s graduation celebrations. The group of students and parent volunteers decided that the leftover money should be donated to a good cause.

Major Kirk Green and Maureen Logan accepted the donation, in the form of grocery gift cards, on behalf of the food bank earlier this week.
