CALGARY, Alberta, Canada—Parkland Corporation is fundraising throughout August to support Canadian Red Cross relief efforts for those impacted by the recent and ongoing wildfires burning in British Columbia.
“The wildfires in BC are having devastating impacts on many of the communities our customers and employees call home,” said Donna Sanker, president of Parkland Canada, in a press release. “Community is a core value of our company, and when our communities are in need, Parkland steps up. I encourage BC residents to stop by one of our Chevron, Fas Gas or ON the RUN retail locations and donate what they can. Working together, we hope the funds we raise can help provide relief and support to those who need it.”
Taking place at more than 200 participating Chevron and Fas Gas retail locations across BC, as well as ON the RUN convenience stores, Parkland will match its customers’ donations up to a total of $50,000. All money raised will be donated to the Canada Red Cross 2021 BC Fires Appeal, with every dollar matched by the government of British Columbia and by the government of Canada during the first 10 days of the campaign.
“Thanks to the generosity of Canadians everywhere, the Canadian Red Cross is able to support the immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts during this wildfire season in British Columbia,” said John Kim, associate director of corporate partnerships for the Canadian Red Cross. “A special thank you to Parkland and their customers for their support.”
