Target reached – thank you!
The money collected will make it possible to meet the urgent needs of those affected, such as clothing, hearing aids, dentures and mobility aids. The program also covers special furniture and safety equipment, household items and pharmaceuticals.
Another component of the program provides assistance to grieving families to help with travel, accommodation and meal expenses. This will facilitate family reunification, and help with the formalities facing families who have lost a loved one.
The Red Cross’s ability to respond immediately to an emergency or disaster anywhere in Canada depends on the donations it receives throughout the year. In order to help others who may lose everything as a result of a disaster, please make a donation right now to the Canadian Red Cross Fund.
Our organization is transparent, open and accountable in reporting how your donations are used to make a difference in the lives of those that need our help.
