Canadian Red Cross
Relief-Volunteer-Following the evacuation and state of emergency due to the uncontrolled spread of the wildfires in Fort McMurry, evacuees were sent to Edmonton Alberta and required places to stay as well as household items, toiletries and clothing. Assisted at various Canadian Red Cross centres in Edmonton by greeting displaced victims, enquired about their needs, housing arrangements and health concerns if any. Helped organize, stock and distribute donated toiletries, household items, canned foods and perishables and clothing to wildfire victims. Personally assisted individuals find temporary housing in different parts of Edmonton.
