DAWSON CREEK -- Northern Lights College Carpentry program received funding from the Dawson Creek Co-op to build houses for a non-profit organization.

The Dawson Creek Co-op handed students at Northern Lights College a $2,000 cheque to put towards building dog houses for the South Peace SPCA.

The funding will help buy the materials students need to build the houses.

Carpentry students will begin building the houses this month, in hopes of having them ready for the SPCA by May.
