Alberta is currently going through tough times due to COVID and its related impacts on job losses. Meanwhile, our friends in Fort McMurray is currently fighting a flood situation, due to spring ice jam in the Athabasca river. Combined with COVID related to job losses, people of Fort McMurray are under severe strain.
EMC has initiated this fund raiser to support people of Alberta. Proceeds from this relief effort will go to the Calgary Food Bank, Edmonton Food Bank and Fort McMurray Food Bank. Funds raised through this relief effort will be equally divided between the food banks in Calgary, Edmonton and Fort McMurray.
Donate generously and let us show our support for the people in need.
