FROM individuals to businesses to schools, locals have been contributing to the effort to aid the victims of Typhoon Haiyan which swept through the Philippines in November.

The number of schools contributing included Suwilaawks Community School and Skeena Middle School.

At Skeena Middle School, the effort was lead by its student leadership group which organized a coin drive.

By the end, the students had collected $1,246.19.

Businesses such as the Kawrner Store on Kalum put out collection jars.

Also collecting money was the provincial government liquor store.

When finished, the government liquor store had collected $4,418, the most of any mid-sized provincial liquor store and 8th overall in the province.

Donations of $2 and $5 were accepted with the money going to the Red Cross.

In all, 195 provincial liquor stores took part.

Customers at the Terrace government liquor store were also major contributors in support of Alberta flood victims this past summer.
