Thank you Amec Foster Wheeler employees!
FAIR Executive Director Janet MacNeil (centre) and Receptionist Noma Kurulok (third from the right) were recently invited to Amec Foster Wheeler’s offices in Trail for a special gift.
Amec Foster Wheeler employees raised over $1,000.00 at their annual Christmas Party silent auction and chose FAIR as the recipient of this year’s funds.
Merry Christmas Amec!

“Trail Operations is pleased to support the Trail Family and Individual Resource Society with funding for training for the dedicated volunteers of the West Kootenay Boundary Crisis Line” says Vanelli-Worosz.
Janet MacNeil, FAIR Executive Director and Sheila Dudek, Crisis Line Co-ordinator were on hand to accept the donation.
