Community…

Almost three weeks after deadly flood waters swept through Calgary destroying homes and damaging property, people are still trying to rebuild.  Many corporations have committed funding and services to provide immediate relief to Calgary’s communities.  CIBC announced on June 21, 2013, it is donating $100,000 to support ongoing relief efforts.  Likewise, Scotia Bank donated $100,000 to the Alberta flood relief.  Suncor Energy launched a matching donation program up to $150,000.  This was in addition to the $100,000 the company already pledged.
Another business stepping up is Shane Homes.  The company donated $100,000 to a Community Disaster Assistance Fund and dropped all of its generators in hard hit areas to help maintain daily gas requirements.  Duracell Power Forward distributed 18,000 batteries to help power flashlights and radios. Here is a detailed list of businesses that have made contributions.  This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but it is meant to highlight the growing effort put forth by our corporate community to help flood victims.
