Port Coquitlam Rallies Together to Raise Funds for the Burn Unit

by Jamie January 08, 2013

If you saw Jamie Kaminski in the Tricity News on Friday, you’ll have known of the amazing fundraiser that took place this past weekend on the #1 Fire Hall in Port Coquitlam.




HSR Services, Foam Only, and the POCO fire department collected Styrofoam, light strands, Christmas lights and trees to recycle, with proceeds going directly towards the BC Professional Fire Fighters Association Burn Fund.



Over 1,000 cubic feet of Styrofoam, 200 Christmas trees, and more than 700 pounds of light strands will avoid the landfill, thanks to your donations.








The fire department was even washing cars for those who had to strap the tree to the roof. Now that’s service!

And it was well worth it, as we raised $4,400 towards the Burn Unit – more than $1,200 from last year!<

We had a great time chowing down on pizza, sipping hot chocolate, and meeting the community. It’s heartening to see that giving and generosity extend past the holiday season, as people were willing to take time out of their weekends to give back to such an amazing cause while living sustainably.


Keep your eye out for opportunities to give back, as we plan to throw more community fundraising events in the future! Follow @HSRServices for updates.
