AFDE gives back to the Community

AFDE and its employees are working to make a positive impact in the community where we work; A community many of us call home, or at least home away from home.

AFDE employees are once again supporting the Fort St. John’s Women’s Resource Society. The Society provides assistance to over 1,000 people in need in FSJ every month. For more information, on their activities, visit

A simple request went out to fill their “needs” list (groceries & other essential items) or donate cash. AFDE employees went shopping at local groceries and pharmacies to fill our Christmas trailer with food and essential items, and then topped it off with a significant cash donation.

Thank you to everyone – AFDE employees have “dam” big hearts!

AFDE joined local businesses as a lead sponsor for Advent Calendars which were on sale at the Fort St. John Home Hardware. The background of the calendars features an AFDE crane working on the GSS. All proceeds went to support the FSJ Firefighter’s Charitable Society. Project Administrator Jennie Gagnon said, “We feel privileged to be working in the Peace Region and are always looking for ways to contribute positively to the community.”

We have an excellent working relationship with the Fort St. John Firefighters and are proud to support their Charitable Society. Their work focusses on supporting medical transport and associated aid for individuals who need medical care not available in the region, as well as supporting the BC Professional Firefighter’s burn fund.
