Terrace RCMP are asking the public to be aware of charity fraud after a recent incident in our community.

“The community of Terrace is very generous and understands the importance of supporting the many fundraisers that are always occurring. Organized activities can be very expensive, especially when you factor in the cost of travel from here. Ensure that the organization or person soliciting you is legitimate,” says Const. Angela Rabut, community policing/media relations Terrace RCMP.

In this recent incident, a group of youths were seeking cash pledges in support of a school activity. A pledge sheet was created in a lined notebook and the youth were going door to door soliciting.

The youth, school, parents, and RCMP are working together through this incident.
