As we’re all aware, British Columbians are facing massive wildfires that have triggered evacuations in several communities across the province.
Fast moving flames have forced thousands of people from their homes. Urgent help is needed for individuals and families evacuated from their communities.
In response to an outpouring of concern, Coquitlam Centre is supporting Red Cross efforts on the ground by acting as a financial donation site.
Donations can be made online on Coquitlam Centre’s Red Cross page www.redcross.ca/bcfires/coquitlamcentre or in person at Guest Services (located on Level 1 by Hudson's Bay). Donations can be made in cash, on credit card or debit or by cheque (made payable to the Canadian Red Cross).
Coquitlam Centre will be matching donations up to $5,000.
Your donation will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification and financial assistance for food, clothing and personal needs. Beyond meeting immediate needs, your donation may also help re-entry and go towards more long-term recovery, resiliency and preparedness.
For more information, please call Guest Services at 604.464.1414.
