Salvation Army's Red Backpack Program Getting Boost In Niles

The Salvation Army in Niles will get a boost next week from the Four Flags Area Chamber of Commerce, Precision Pipeline and Enbridge Energy. Four Flags President and CEO Tyanna Weller tells WSJM News that a $10,000 donation will be given to fund the "Feeding the Sheep" or Red Backpack program.


The money was raised by Precision Pipeline and Enbridge employees, who came up with $5,000 out of their pockets for the program recently


With the negative publicity Enbridge has received in Michigan since its Line 6B ruptured in Calhoun County and sent nearly 900,000 gallons of oil into the Kalamazoo River and a tributary, Weller says it's important to highlight the good work the company is doing. With its efforts to replace all of its pipeline in the state, she says as many as 11-hundred workers had been in Niles recently.


Precision has been working with Enbridget to replace old oil pipelines. The check will be presented to the Salvation Army next Monday at 10 a.m. by Four Flags and representatives of Precision Pipeline and Enbridge.
