Langley firefighters raise $3,000 for charity and community initiatives

January 14, 2022

About $3,000 was raised by Langley City paid on-call firefighters at their very first tree chipping and bottle drive, held Saturday, Jan. 8 and Sunday, Jan. 9 at the former site of Gabby’s nightclub.

Much of it was cash donations from people who dropped by the site on Fraser Highway and 203rd Street, said Mark Scelsa, a firefighter with 10 years at the Langley City department.

“Both days went really, really well,” Scelsa told the Langley Advance Times.

And even though they were open for a shorter period on Sunday, they received more donations that day – likely because the weather had improved, he speculated.

“Sunday was just a beautiful day,” Scelsa remarked.
