A state of emergency has been declared in Alberta, and communities across the province are stepping up to support those affected by the wildfires. As communities combat over 80 wildfires, the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta and the Drayton Valley Community Foundation are mobilizing to respond. Communities need long-term support to recover and rebuild from this devastation.
These community foundations have deep roots in the community and are working alongside their local municipalities to ensure a coordinated response. To support these efforts you can donate to the Northwestern Alberta Emergency Response Fund and the Emergency Relief Fund in Drayton Valley. Through these emergency, flow through funds, donations will be distributed now and in the coming months to rebuild communities. At this moment in the crisis, these monetary donations, rather than donations of goods or services, are ideal as it allows communities the flexibility to be responsive to what they need. The funding will focus on how communities can recover long term and the foundations will be working with local municipalities to identify the community needs.
