To All Members:
British Columbia is coping with the worst wildfire season on record, with hundreds of active fires forcing thousands of people to evacuate.
Unifor has donated $150,000 to the Canadian Red Cross B.C. Fire Appeal to support immediate and ongoing relief efforts. The donation was made with contributions from the Social Justice Fund, the Canadian Community Fund and the B.C., Prairie, Quebec, Ontario and Atlantic Regional Councils.
The damage is catastrophic, leading the province to extend a state of emergency until September 12. Urgent assistance is needed to provide aid and assist in long-term recovery.
You can help by donating to the Canadian Red Cross using the Unifor portal at www.redcross.ca/BCFires/Unifor.
Donations by B.C. residents will be doubled as the province will match all individual donations (up to a $20 million maximum).
Together we can make a difference in the lives of those devastated by the wildfires.
