EJ Dunn Middle School student Isaac McDonald has been a Bulldogs fan for most of his life and feels strongly that the team is a big part of our community.

Believing that everyone should play a part in the Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society fundraising effort, McDonald started a drive to donate in the name of EJ Dunn Students and Staff. He kicked off his campaign last week at the school by selling freezies to fellow classmates over the lunch hour.

Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society fundraising committee member Ken McRae was on hand to buy some freezies, as was EJ Dunn vice-principal Steve Brown.

Two of McDonald’s classmates jumped at the sweet deal, purchasing 40 freezies to pass out to others who weren’t able to buy one.
