Alberta Fires Six Month Donor Update
In late January 2017 the CMMG received a letter from the Canadian Red Cross regarding the donation made by CMMG members in 2016 to help with the Alberta Fires in For MacMurray. Below is the letter we received. You can download a PDF of the brochure that accompanied the letter from here.

Subject: Alberta Fires Six Month Donor Update
Dear Friends of the Red Cross,
There are thousands of stories that have come out of the ashes of For McMurray. Everett’s is just one of them. Everett received help from the Canadian Red Cross after he returned home to find that the fire had consumed everything he held dear.
Your fundraising efforts in support of the Alberta Fires appeal ensure that the Red Cross is able to support people impacted by the worst domestic disaster in Canadian history. Your thoughtfulness ensures those affected have shelter, food, and even work-related equipment such as tools, so they can return to work once it is safe to do so.
Please find enclosed your copy of the Alberta Fires Six Donor Month Update. In it you will learn how your generosity is helping to restore hope to Everett and thousands like him who lost so much in the fire.
You will also see how your support is going to small businesses and local organizations that are so important to the health and resiliency of any community after a disaster.
I can’t thank you enough for the role you are playing in the releif and recovery operations in Alberta. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
