Boucherville, Quebec, July 11, 2017 – Using its vast network of Lowe’s, RONA, Réno-Dépôt, Marcil, Dick's Lumber and Ace stores across the country, Lowe's Canada announces the launch of a national campaign, in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross, to aid victims of the wildfires currently raging in British Columbia. Beginning today, customers of the various Lowe's Canada banners will be invited, at the moment of their purchase, to make a donation of their choice to the British Columbia Fires fund established by the Red Cross.
Funds raised will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross, which will use them to provide immediate relief such as camp beds and blankets, facilitate the reunification of families, and provide financial assistance to disaster victims to allow them to purchase food and clothing and look after their personal needs.
