Flood relief at liquor stores

Customers can support Red Cross flood relief efforts in Alberta by making a donation at any of the 195 B.C. Liquor Stores in the province

Customers can support Red Cross flood relief  efforts in Alberta by making a donation at any of the 195 B.C. Liquor  Stores located in communities throughout the province.

These donations  will help provide people with necessary emergency relief, medical  treatment and assistance to recover from the effects of the flooding.

Until Aug. 10, customers may make donations of $2 or $5 – or  multiples thereof – at all checkouts in B.C. Liquor Stores.

The B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch has a long-term partnership with  the Canadian Red Cross Society.

Due to the size and scope of the damage from  flooding in Alberta, the Canadian Red Cross requested that the LDB  activate its fundraising system.

Since 2010, B.C. Liquor Store customers and employees have supported disaster relief by contributing over $840,000 for humanitarian crises in  Haiti, Pakistan, Japan and Africa.

B.C. Liquor Store customers and  employees have also supported disaster relief efforts closer to home, like B.C.’s wildfires, Hurricane Katrina and now, flooding in Alberta.
