On behalf of TimberWest, we send out our heartfelt thoughts to those affected by the BC wildfires.
Knowing that these wildfires have displaced thousands of families and destroyed homes and property across the interior, we wanted to help out. TimberWest has donated $5,000 and additionally matched the donations of our staff and contractors. Together we are donating $13,450 to the Red Cross. This contribution will be matched by the Federal Government, making every contribution go even further.
Thankfully, some families are returning home now. However, conditions remain unstable and evacuations could once again befall many communities.
Wildfires, like the ones burning in the interior or the one last summer in Fort McMurray, are a terrifying reminder of how dangerous it is to disobey fire bans.
Please respect the forest and respect the fire ban. Communities, families, forests, and animals can all be lost by reckless behaviour.
