SNC-Lavalin has donated $25,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to assist relief efforts following the intense flooding that devastated parts of southern Quebec, Canada.
Over 5,200 families in affected Quebec communities have been displaced by heavy rains and melting snow since early May. This donation will enable the Canadian Red Cross to provide the community with important support for personal services, cleanup, rebuilding, furniture replacement, and other necessities to assist with the recovery.
“Our hearts go out to the people whose lives have been impacted by this disaster,” said Ian Edwards, President, Infrastructure. “Quebec is the birthplace of SNC-Lavalin and is home to thousands of our employees. We are proud to stand with the Canadian Red Cross to provide immediate relief to our friends and neighbours at this time of great need.”
This latest donation reiterates SNC-Lavalin’s steadfast commitment as a corporate citizen and community leader, and it represents an important continuation of our relationship with the Canadian Red Cross. Last year, SNC-Lavalin donated $25,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to fund disaster relief efforts in Fort McMurray, Alberta, after a wildfire devastated a part of that community. We also donated $100,000 to the relief organization in 2013 following serious and widespread flooding in Alberta.
You, too, can help flood victims across Quebec. To make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross, click here or call 1-800-418-1111.
