Comox Fire Rescue to host YANA tree chipping event

Comox Firefighters will host their annual Christmas 4ree recycling project on Jan. 4 and 5, 2020. All of the proceeds collected are given to local charity YANA (You Are Not Alone). Last year the tree chipping event raised more than $4,500.

“Projects like these are a win/win for our community,” said Comox Fire Rescue Chief Gord Schreiner. “I am so proud of our firefighters for everything they do. Not only do they respond to emergencies but they assist our community in so many other ways. They love giving back to our community. I would also like to thank all those citizens who donate to this great cause.”

“The support from these firefighters in Comox has been awesome,” said YANA president Kelly Rusk. “They have been with us since our very beginnings and assist us in many.”
