CALGARY, Aug 3, 2021 - Parkland Corporation ("Parkland", "we", the "Company", or "our") today announced it will run a fundraising campaign throughout August to support Canadian Red Cross relief efforts for those impacted by the recent and ongoing wildfires currently burning in British Columbia (“BC”).
Taking place at up to over 200 participating Chevron and Fas Gas retail locations across BC, as well as ON the RUN convenience stores across BC, Parkland will match its customers’ donations up to a total of $50,000. All money raised will be donated to the Canada Red Cross ‘2021 BC Fires Appeal’ with every dollar matched by the Government of British Columbia and also by the Government of Canada (up to August 10).
“The wildfires in BC are having devastating impacts on many of the communities our customers and employees call home,” said Donna Sanker, President, Parkland Canada. “Community is a core value of our company, and when our communities are in need, Parkland steps up. I encourage BC residents to stop by one of our Chevron, Fas Gas or ON the RUN retail locations and donate what they can. Working together, we hope the funds we raise can help provide relief and support to those who need it.”
“Thanks to the generosity of Canadians everywhere, the Canadian Red Cross is able to support the immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts during this wildfire season in British Columbia,” said John Kim, Associate Director, Corporate Partnerships, Canadian Red Cross. “A special thank you to Parkland and their customers for their support.”
