The Port of Prince Rupert donated $4,000 to the Salvation Army during Prince Rupert Rampage’s game against the Williams Lake Stampeders on Feb. 3. The donation is a part of the port’s Goals for Giving Hope initiative, which pledges $100 for every goal scored by the Rampage during the season.
Krista Ediger, community relations associate for the port, presented the cheque to Lieutenant Sabrina Silvey during the game’s first period intermission.
“The Salvation Army does a lot of programs throughout the year that is a great need in this community,” Ediger said.
Silvey said she has been in awe of the support the Salvation Army has received from the community in the time she has been in Prince Rupert.
“Prince Rupert does community really well,” she said. “Very supportive, very eager to help those in need, and we greatly appreciate everyone.”
