Surerus delivers toy donations to community groups

If there was a pipeline for toys, Fort St. John's Surerus Pipeline would likely both happily build it and supply it.

The company gave a number of youth-based agencies across the city a big boost this week—delivering hundreds of toys to daycares and preschools, including the Child Development Centre, Baby Bear Daycare, Totem Preschool, Community Bridge, and the Friendship Centre, among others.

One of the last stops was city hall, where employees Jennilee Rennie and Shelley Van Eindhoven presented a donation to the city's Toys For Ticket campaign—enough to fill five blue bins—which will go to support families through the Salvation Army.

The company usually sends holiday gift baskets to its clients and vendors this time of year, but company owner Brian Surerus thought he'd spend that money on the community instead, Rennie said.

"I was in shock," said bylaw officer Bonnie Isenberg of the donation to the city's campaign, noting she was only expecting a few toys.

"We're very fortunate to have Surerus donate these toys to kick off our campaign."

Until Dec. 19, the city is accepting toys or cash donations for those looking to pay off parking tickets received after Sept. 1 of this year.
