Walmart Canada

A generous supporter of Canadian communities, Walmart Canada has partnered with the Canadian Red Cross since 2003 to provide disaster relief to communities in need and to promote disaster preparedness across the country. As our largest corporate partner, over $21 million has been donated by Walmart and its customers since the partnership began.

Beyond Walmart’s financial contributions, they also provide Canadian Red Cross blankets for families in need, and are always the first company to open their doors and provide in-kind donations of clothes and food among other items when a disaster strikes a community.

Walmart is also the sponsor of the Red Cross Rescuer Awards. These awards recognize Canadians who go above and beyond to save a life or provide aid to the injured. For more information about the company, visit www.walmartcanada.ca.

 

Aviva Canada

Aviva Canada

As national Founding Community Health & Wellness Partner, Aviva Canada’s support is instrumental in enabling the Red Cross to meet the growing health needs of Canadians across the country. Through this innovative partnership, senior citizens and vulnerable people living with illness or injury will have better access to essential community health services such as nutritious meals (Meals on Wheels) or medical equipment, so they can live independently and with dignity.

Aviva Canada was also the first insurance company to become a National Partner of the Red Cross’ Ready When the Time Comes program. Beyond their financial support, which has strengthened Red Cross emergency response capacity, Aviva’s trained employees and brokers are mobilized as volunteers in times of disaster to help individuals and families when they need it most.
