Canfor Corporation has sent a $125,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross for its extreme weather response in B.C.

The donations are allowing Red Cross to carry out relief, recovery, resiliency and risk reduction activities in the areas of B.C. where disastrous flooding and mudslides displaced thousands this past week. B.C. declared a state of emergency Wednesday and military aid was deployed yesterday.

“Our thoughts are with all British Columbians who have been impacted by the extreme flooding and mudslides in recent days. We are pleased to support the extraordinary work of the Red Cross as they provide flood relief support. On behalf of Canfor, we also want to thank all of the first responders, volunteers and individuals who are providing assistance to those in need throughout the province,” said Don Kayne, president and CEO, Canfor.
