$7,777 raised for hospital foundation

More than $7,700 in sweet dough was raised Saturday for the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.

COBS Bread held its first Community Day on July 25, with new and regular customers lining up under sunny skies to get their bread and treats. The event raised a total of $7,777.77, and 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Hospital Foundation's Greatest Need Fund.

"Some customers paid it forward. One customer paid $200 worth of bread for the next customers to get theirs for free," said Asuncion Sta. Maria, the Hospital Foundation's Resource Development and Event Co-ordinator.

"The event was a good testament of community collaboration where businesses and non-profits partner to benefit the Fort St. John community."

Owners Hardik and Kretika Patel opened COBS in June.

“We chose the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation as our charity of choice for Community Day in recognition of their care and commitment to our community,” they said.

“We feel so fortunate to be able to help contribute towards the future medical needs of this energetic, Northern community we live and work in.”
