ASTTBC Calls on Members to Join in Disaster Response Efforts
Massive wildfires have triggered a province-wide state of emergency in British Columbia and urgent support is needed for individuals and families evacuated from their communities.
ASTTBC is appealing to our technology professional community to join in the disaster response efforts by contributing where they can. Here are some ways you can help:
- Donate to the Red Cross: The Canadian Red Cross is supporting the aid efforts of provincial and local authorities. The agency says donations will go towards immediate relief costs, blankets, family reunification, food, clothing and personal needs.
- Donate to Food Banks BC: Food Banks BC has committed to ship food and water to wherever it is needed. A map of locations throughout the province can be found here.
- Donate to the BC SPCA: The BC SPCA is assisting evacuees with pets. It accepts donations on its website.
We encourage your participation as we join together to ensure public safety and help those in crisis!
