We cannot remain indifferent to the fires that are presently devastating northern Alberta. Thousands of people have been displaced, and they need help. We are actually in contact with Vincentians in Edmonton, who are putting in place the mechanisms necessary to respond to assistance requests that will soon start to come forth. We will let you know as soon as we find out if particular needs are expressed. If you wish to contribute financially to help alleviate the suffering of the thousands who are displaced, you may do so by sending your contributions to the National Council, 2463 Innes Road, Ottawa, ON K1B 3K3. Please make your cheque payable to SSVP National Council and write down at the bottom on the left, National Emergency Fund.
