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.
