Four banks in Nelson are accepting cash donations in support of the Canadian Red Cross relief efforts in Alberta.

Approximately 10,000 people have been forced from their homes due to wildfires and the situation continues to unfold.

Financial donations to the Canadian Red Cross will help support families in their recovery. The Canadian Red Cross plays a vital role during recovery by supporting specific vulnerabilities that require help right away and aid for families who need support beyond insurance and provincial disaster assistance.

This may include household repair and clean-up materials, replacement items for children such as cribs, occupational and transportation support and replacement of essential health items.

Canadians can give online, call toll-free at 1-800-418-1111 or visit their local Red Cross office or one of the participating bank branches. Cheques should be earmarked “Alberta Fires.”

The following banks are accepting financial donations from May 20 to June 20: BMO Financial Group; CIBC; RBC; and Scotiabank.
