Liquor stores collect donations for Alberta wildfire relief

B.C. Liquor Stores customers can donate $2, $5 or more to help the Red Cross in Alberta

As wildfire rages in Fort McMurray, Alta., B.C. Liquor Stores customers can support Red Cross relief efforts there by donating at stores throughout the province.

B.C. Liquor Stores customers can donate $2, $5 or more to help the Red Cross in Alberta reunite family members, provide evacuees with shelter, food and water, and later, assist with longer-term needs as the community rebuilds.

“British Columbia knows all too well the devastation of wildfires, and our thoughts are with Fort McMurray during this difficult time,” said Coralee Oakes, small business minister.

“By donating to the Red Cross at B.C. Liquor Stores, British Columbians are doing our part to support everyone impacted by the fire and ensure they will have a strong recovery.”
