Comox firefighters held their annual Christmas tree recycling project on Jan. 5 and 6, raising more than $4,000 for the local charity YANA (You Are Not Alone).
The firefighters donated their time, and Asplundh Canada donated the equipment and labour to make this event a success.
“Projects like these are a win/win for our community,” said Comox Fire Rescue Chief Gord Schreiner.
“It is great to see companies like Asplundh Canada step up in such a big way to assist us. They were great! 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 donated to this great cause.”
YANA president Kelly Rusk concurred.
“The support from these firefighters in Comox has been awesome,” he said. “They have been with us since our very beginnings and assist us in many.”
