The importance of giving back to the community

We value the importance of giving back to Fort St. John and the surrounding communities. We are doing this by supporting programs that encourage education, healthy families, children and youth, and sports.

PRHP has donated a 12-foot shipping container (called a seacan) to the Charlie Lake Kidz Sports not-for-profit organization. This will be used to store sporting equipment. Kidz Sports is completely volunteer run and provides a summer kids program, for both soccer and baseball, ages K-G6, at a very low cost for families. They also offer sporting equipment to families who can not afford to purchase it themselves.

We are also proud to have donated $5,000 to sponsor the entire volunteer and attendee dinner on Saturday, May 25, at the 60th Annual Hoselay Competition. This year the competition, ran from May 25 – 27, and was hosted by the Taylor Fire Department. Firefighters from Taylor and the surrounding communities competed in various activities to raise funds to benefit the hosting communities and their fire departments.

In addition, we donated three computers to the River of the Peace Metis Society office in the District of Hudson’s Hope. Below is a testimonial from their organization.

On June 19th, Peace River Hydro Partner employees, Megan Adams and Lucas Panoulias, delivered three new computers to our president, Valerie Paice, for the River of the Peace Metis Society office located at Pearkes Centre. This generous donation will allow us to assist our members and the public in searching for employment and career opportunities, renewal of tickets for job requirements and education and grant research.  This will be a wonderful help for our members and community. Thank you again to PRHP.
