BC Wildfires Donations
Canadian Red Cross
"The Red Cross is supporting the province of British Columbia and local authorities in providing assistance to those affected by the wildfires. Your donation will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification and financial assistance for food, clothing and personal needs. Beyond meeting immediate needs, your donation may also help re-entry and go towards more long-term recovery, resiliency and preparedness."
BC Liquor Stores
You can make an in-store donation at any BC Liquor store. Funds are being collected for BC Fires Red Cross relief efforts, and will go directly to the Red Cross.
"Show your support by making a donation of $2 or $5—or multiples thereof at any BC Liquor Store. Every dollar counts."
The BC SPCA has been forced to relocate at least 40 animals from shelters near active wildfires.
You can help by donating online – they're not looking for any physical donations just yet.
"We are also doing what we can to aid local organizations and emergency response on the ground to ensure any other animals that need help will get it!"
Emergency response units are at several locations handing out food, water and various types of support to all those affected by wildfires.
"It is our mission to offer hope and practical support in the midst of challenging circumstances," says the Salvation Army's John McEwan, who is the Emergency Disaster Services Director for British Columbia.
Food Banks BC
Food banks are ready to ship food and water to wherever supplies are needed.
Volunteering for British Columbia Emergency Social Services
"British Columbians forced from their homes by fire, floods, earthquakes or other emergencies may receive emergency social services for up to 72 hours. Services may include food, lodging, clothing, emotional support, information about the crisis, and family reunification. There may also be special services like first aid, child minding, pet care and transportation."
