The families and people of Fort McMurray have been devastated by the wildfire that has been sweeping through their community. As a state of emergency was declared, the entire country has offered aid in some way to residents of Fort McMurray and surrounding areas. The Government of Alberta is providing emergency financial assistance of $1,250 per adult and $500 per dependent to help cover expenses for wildfire evacuees. The provincial and federal governments have pledged to match all donations made to the Canadian Red Cross in aid of this disaster in Fort McMurray, making it one of the largest fundraising efforts for a natural disaster in Canadian history. We proudly made a $5000 donation to the Red Cross in support of Fort McMurray and the Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal. From our Turkstra Lumber Family to yours. Our donation to this fire relief fund will be able to financially assist 4 adults from Fort McMurrary.
