Across Canada, in every manufacturing plant and office of Atlantic Industries Limited, AIL folks have colleagues friends or relatives affected by the devastating wildfire that ravaged parts of Fort McMurray.
The fire, known as ‘The Beast’, forced over 90,000 people to flee and destroyed over 2,400 homes and buildings, along with critical infrastructure. The degree of damage and economic impact are unprecedented in Canadian history.
There was a feeling of helplessness as we all watched the drama unfold on social media and news footage.
AIL employees took the initiative to do something about it, raising $2,245 for the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal. The Company matched that amount to create a total donation of $4,490.
On behalf of everyone at AIL, we wish all those affected by this tragedy, the best possible outcomes as they rebuild their lives.
Donations are still needed
Donations to the Alberta Fires Emergency Appeal can still be made on the Canadian Red Cross website. Please donate now »
