Comox Firefighters Christmas Tree Recycling weekend a huge success! ~ YANA WINS!!

Comox Firefighters held their annual Christmas Tree recycling project on January 5 + 6, 2019. 100% of the proceeds collect are given to local charity YANA (“You Are Not Alone”). This year the Comox firefighters raised more than $4000.00.

 While the firefighters donated their time, Asplundh Canada donated their equipment and labour to make this event a success.

 Chief Gord Schreiner states: “Projects like these are a WIN/WIN for our community. 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.”

YANAs Kelly Rusk states: “The support from these firefighters in Comox has been awesome. They have been with us since our very beginnings and assist us in many.”
