As we all know, Fort McMurray is in an emergency situation as a massive forest fire rips down people’s homes, businesses and entire lives. The sudden change of wind direction as well as dry conditions has caused a fire just outside the city to quickly spread inside the city limits. The people of Fort McMurray were forced to evacuate their homes without having the chance to grab their personal belongings. In light of these traumatic events, we’re asking the students of Archbishop MacDonald to bring in items to help support the people of Fort McMurray who have lost so much in these past few days.

We’re asking for the following:

  •  Diapers
  • Baby wipes
  •  Underwear
  •  Socks
  • Toiletries (such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes)
  • Donating blood to Canadian Blood Services will help a great deal to victims of this crisis
  • Any financial donations can be brought to the business office, or you can donate $5 by texting “REDCROSS” to 30333. Alberta and Federal governments will match the donations made to Red Cross.

Any donations will help- let’s come together as a Mac community and support the people of Fort McMurray. #AlbertaStrong
