May 11, 2016. OTTAWA. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) is calling on all Canadians to support the Canadian Red Cross’ Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal.
On May 3, massive wildfires triggered the largest fire-related evacuation in Alberta history with tens of thousands of people forced to leave their homes in more than 12 communities, including Fort McMurray. Urgent emergency services are required to support individuals and families.
Your donation can provide relief for those affected in the form of emergency food, clothing, shelter, personal services, and other necessities to help assist with recovery and resiliency.
The UCC expresses its deepest sympathy to all those who have been affected by these devastating fires. We call on members of our community to give generously in support of the Red Cross’ relief efforts.
Donations can be made online at www.redcross.ca/UCC
Please note that the Government of Canada is matching individual donations to the Emergency Appeal.
