A local organization is hoping to get a financial boost from the community.
The Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society supports around 900 families per year through their programs.
"We're seeing a lot of new faces, as is expected when you have your community growing," said Kim Heatherington, the program manager.
This year, they are offering a new summer program called Camp Connect, which offers families with young children the opportunity to participate in summer activities together in the surrounding communities.
MIX 107 is holding another Taste of Summer Charity BBQ on Wednesday (July 17). For a minimum $2 donation, people can get a hot dog, a can of pop and chips. All proceeds will go to the Families First Society.
The money raised will be put towards early childhood and family support programming.
"It means everything," Heatherington added about the community support. "We're just so grateful that people are stepping up and helping us out."
The BBQ will go from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m in front of the Station Square Co-op.
