No one could have imagined the response Calgary has given in the face of this disaster.
We are happy to say that The Wood Buffalo Food Bank is back in their building and will be re-opening their doors this coming Saturday June 11, at noon.
You have donated over 60 skids of food and tens of thousands of dollars for the residents of Fort McMurray. You have invited evacuees into your homes, and give all that you can. Even the image above, created by our very own Gary Duits, honors the tragedy. No one could have possibly asked for more.
We wish our Food Bank family at the Wood Buffalo Food Bank all the best as they prepare to help the residents of Fort McMurray re-establish themselves. The story is by no means over and it will be many years before the city returns to anything near normal, and we will continue to do all that we can to support those returning to their homes.
We are so proud to be a part of such an amazing community.
Thank you Calgary.
