We have received an overwhelming amount of requests for donations. First and foremost, thank you to every organization and individual that has offered their services, goods, and financial support in this time of need.

The best way to support residents impacted by the Coldwater River Flood is through a financial donation. Donations will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and risk reduction activities in and beyond the region at the individual and community levels.

Here are some meaningful ways to assist your friends, family, and neighbours:

The Canadian Red Cross is working to get help to people in and around affected areas as quickly as possible and provide humanitarian assistance for new needs as they arise. Money raised will enable the Red Cross to carry out relief, recovery, resiliency and risk reduction activities in and beyond the region at the individual and community levels. Make a financial donation to the Red Cross by one of the following ways:

  1. Online at redcross.ca
