Patrol units packed full for Battlefords Humane Society
An annual fundraiser organized by the City of North Battleford’s Community Safety Officers (CSOs) netted a significant outpouring of generosity last Friday.
The Pack the Patrol Unit fundraiser in aid of the Battlefords Humane Society was a success yet again, pulling in $2070 in cash donations and 3100 pounds of dog and cat food. The event was staged at five retail locations in North Battleford this year: Walmart, PetValu, Giant Tiger, No Frills, and Canadian Tire. Staffed with not only CSOs but volunteers from the Humane Society and Citizens on Patrol, the fundraiser also featured artistic contributions on display from local schools.
Officer Justin Rask suggested that schools be invited to participate this year. “The CSOs would like to recognize all the schools that participated in helping create attention with artwork for the Pack the Patrol cause,” commented Officer Rask.
Participating schools included Holy Family, St. Mary’s, Lawrence Elementary, École Monseigneur Blaise Morand, Bready Elementary, and McKitrick Elementary – with McKitrick winning a class pizza party for the “best display”. All students who took part in the contest receive a pass for the InnovationPlex, donated by the City of North Battleford.
Pack the Patrol Unit will continue next year with a tentative date set for December 6, 2024. The City of North Battleford and Community Safety Officers extend gratitude to all who donated to make this annual event a success in 2023.
