Road Salt Available to Residents during Cold Snap

Capilano Mall fundraiser will support the North Vancouver City Firefighters Local 296 Foundation

NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. – With Vancouver experiencing the longest cold snap in a decade, Capilano Mall is doing its part to help local residents de-ice. On Wednesday, January 11, Capilano Mall will be giving away salt in exchange for a minimum donation, where all funds raised will support the North Vancouver City Firefighters Local 296 Foundation.

“This has been one of the coldest winters we’ve experienced in years, and the shortage of salt has caused visible mayhem on North Vancouver streets and sidewalks,” said Shera Allibhai, Property Manager for Capilano Mall. “With road salt in such short supply right now, and the obstacles this has posed for local residents, we felt the need to contribute what we could.”

Capilano Mall has approximately 7,500 lbs. of salt at its disposal. The mall is planning to give pre-packaged bags of salt to local residents for a minimum donation.

“We at Capilano Mall recognize the constant efforts made by our local firefighters,” added Allibhai. “We are very pleased to be able to fundraise for the North Vancouver City Firefighters through this community initiative.”

Taking place at the Hanes Avenue entrance to Capilano Mall on Wednesday, January 11 at 10am, Capilano Mall staff and members from the North Vancouver City Firefighters Local 296 Foundation will be handing out salt in pre-packaged 10 lbs. bags for a minimum cash donation of $10 per bag. Salt will be available on a first-come first-served basis, while quantities last.
