Montreal, November 18, 2021 – Desjardins Group is joining forces with the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks BC by making a $100,000 donation to provide urgent aid to people and communities hit hard by flooding and mudslides after extreme weather in British Columbia.
"Desjardins Group is fully committed to helping British Columbians during the province's unprecedented state of emergency," said Guy Cormier, President and CEO of Desjardins Group. "Rebuilding may take many months. Entire neighbourhoods and cities are submerged, thousands of people have been evacuated and main highways are cut off. We must stand with the inhabitants of British Columbia to support recovery efforts."
Desjardins members and clients can donate to the Red Cross's British Columbia Floods & Extreme Weather Appeal by visiting www.redcross.ca or calling 1-800-418-1111. Those who wish to donate to Food Banks BC can go to www.foodbanksbc.com.
