Current Community Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiatives - MAY 2016

Alberta Fires Appeal: Help the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fire Appeal - 05/06/16

Eagle River Credit Union invites you to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross appeal in aid of those affected by the Alberta wildfires.  Donations could provide relief for those affected in the form of emergency food, clothing, shelter, personal services, and other necessities to help assist with recovery.

Because so many of our members are affected by this terrible tragedy, either directly or through family and friends, Eagle River Credit Union has pledged a corporate donation, on behalf of our members, of $5,000 to the Alberta Fire Appeal.  Likewise, the credit union Atlantic Central has committed an additional $5,000 to the cause.  With the Federal Government matching donations dollar for dollar, this will amount to $20,000 for the people of the Fort McMurray area, as they cope with the devastation this fire is causing. 

Members who wish to provide their support may make donations at any participating credit union in Atlantic Canada, or by:

  • Donating online at www.redcross.ca
  • Calling 1-800-418-1111
  • Donating at your local Canadian Red Cross office
Donation cheques should be made payable to the Canadian Red Cross, earmarked "Alberta Fires Appeal" and mailed to:

Canadian Red Cross National Processing Centre

PO Box 39

Saint John, NB  E2L 3X3

Donations of $20.00 or more are eligible for tax receipts, upon request.  Receipts may take up to 14 weeks for processing.

The Staff, Management and Board of Eagle River Credit Union are deeply saddened by the devastation that the fires are having in the Fort McMurray area. We have many members, friends and family that are living and working in the area. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted.
