The Flin Flon Fire Department held their annual Boot Drive on Third Avenue Friday. Fire Chief Jim Petrie says the generosity of people in this community is unbelievable. He says this year they’ve donated to local charities the Food Bank and the SPCA and the total is 10,465 dollars plus Scotia Bank is throwing in an additional 5 thousand dollars bringing their grand total this year to 15,465 dollars.
Petrie adds the idea of donating the money locally this year was well accepted by people donating and they will be selecting two other local charities for next year. In the past the money has gone to a national charity muscular dystrophy.
