Earlier this week Critical Control offered to match staff donations to the Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal. In one day we were able to raise $2100! With the corporate matching, as well as provincial and federal matching programs that $2100 became $8400 ($2100 matched three times).
Many people came forward to share their stories of how the fires have affected their friends, families and colleagues. Besides monetary donations our staff have opened their homes, shared clothes and toys, donated Air Miles and the list goes on. The theme of every conversation about the fires is the same – desire for it to end, for our neighbours in the north to be able to get back into their homes and gratitude for those who have been working tirelessly to mitigate the damages. Our hearts and thoughts are with everyone who has been affected.
If you haven’t donated yet you have until the end of the month to donate and have your donation qualify for government matching. Use the link below.
