Fort McMurray Disaster

You can Help

You will all be aware of the forest fires which have devastated the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta.

The United Church of Canada is accepting donations to provide relief to those who were forced to evacuate their homes.  Over 80,000 people have been affected.  Most of them have lost everything but the few items they could pack into their vehicles. 

If you can help financially, you can donate directly to The. U.C.C. at

Do not donate to Carman as we have not set up for these funds at this time.
