Walmart stepped up to help Hope Air raise funds for people in the Quesnel area who require financial assistance in reaching medical assistance outside the area. For a hot dog sales fundraiser, Walmart supplied the food, condiments, napkins, a tent and the barbecue as well as Walmart’s head office matching the funds raised at the event. A special shout-out to Dale for bringing his tent to provide a dry place for the public to enjoy their hot dog. In addition to everything else, Walmart Quesnel also added the money raised in the store was from employee activities for the month of August. The event raised $1,070 for flights to medical appointments and procedures for local people.
