The Great Canadian Wholesale Club initiated a fundraiser in support of Friends of the Family through the President’s Choice Children’s Charity Fund. Tokens were sold in the store and there was strong support from citizens and businesses. The $1,360 raised will help Nelson and Area Friends of the Family achieve its mission to “provide initial monetary aid for travel-related expenses for medical treatment for children stricken with serious illness or injury and their families.” Pictured are Pat Dooley, Nelson and Area Friends of the Family chair; Marie Labelle, manager John Siray, Darryl Baer, Tammy Marchischuk, and Lorna Staten, a director with Friends of the Family.
