The Salvation Army's Beacon Bus replacement campaign is picking up speed thanks to another big donation.

The latest contribution to help replace the mobile-response vehicle, which has been on Victoria streets since 1997, is $10,000 from Keycorp Consulting Ltd.

Combined with an earlier anonymous gift of $50,000 - the result of media coverage of the campaign - the Beacon Bus fundraising effort has now raised more than 60 per cent of its $100,000 goal.

Keycorp had previously supported the Salvation Army during its holiday Red Kettle campaign.

Like the current Beacon Bus, the replacement will have a kitchen, allowing hundreds of meals an hour to be served during emergencies and disasters such as forest fires.

The current vehicle is an aging GMC school bus, and the plan is to replace it with a Sprinter van.

To make a donation, call 250-386-3366 (ext. 4).

Donations can also be made by mail or in person at 777 Fort. St., Third Floor, Victoria, B.C., V8W 1G9.
