$4,000 to Salvation Army and $4,000 to B.C. Agriculture Council

Representatives from a non-profit organization that promotes trade between China and Canada came to Chilliwack recently to donate $8,000 for flood relief.

The Canada International Trade Promotion Society (CITPS) is a non-profit organization with offices in Vancouver and Beijing.

CITPS president Jeannie Cheng was at the Downtown BIA office with investor Jensen Li to present the cheque, $4,000 of which is to the Chilliwack Salvation Army and $4,000 to the B.C. Agricultural Council (BCAC).

In attendance was Mayor Ken Popove, local gallery owner Asai Wu-Brandt, Don Armstrong of the Chilliwack Salvation Army, and local Salvation Army business manager Warren Schatz.

After Chilliwack, they went to Abbotsford to present to the BCAC.

“We take it seriously to help the flood-relief of these areas,” Cheng told The Progress. “We shall continue to keep contact with these areas and try to do something more to fit the needs of their flood relief.”
