As you have seen on the news, thousands of British Columbians are facing massive and fast-spreading wildfires. Stories of panicked evacuations and people seeing flames reach their communities are difficult to hear. Those who have been devastated by these fires need our hearts and our help. The Canadian Red Cross has activated its disaster response teams across the province. Shelter supplies and other resources have been mobilized to provide immediate and long-term help to impacted individuals and families. We believe strongly in supporting the Red Cross as they continue to support our fellow Canadians.
Your donation will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification and financial assistance for food, clothing and personal needs. Beyond meeting immediate needs, your donation may also help re-entry and go towards more long-term recovery, resiliency and preparedness.
