Fort McMurray Emergency Relief
The Synod Office is now coordinating the accommodations and Bishop Jane is asking people who want to make this offer to contact Shelly King at firstname.lastname@example.org
The government, Northlands and everyone else involved in disaster relief has been saying consistently that the preferred centre for donations is the Red Cross. Their website for Fort McMurray disaster relief is
The Alberta government and the Federal government are both matching donations made by Canadians, so this is a very effective way to give.
For those who want to give material aid, Edmonton Emergency Relief Services is collecting donations and is in need of volunteers. Specifically, they are collecting diapers, baby wipes, NEW toiletries (such as soap, shampoo, tampons, toothpaste etc.) and NEW socks and underwear. Please do not bring random old stuff! Take your donations, NOT to the Expo Centre, but to the ERS offices, downtown at 10255-104 Street. They will distribute the items where they are needed most. If you would like to volunteer, please call 780-428-4422. Leave a message and someone will respond to your call.
Let’s keep praying for everyone involved, and especially that the Lord would send us a good rain. Let's also pray for our fellow Anglican Christians in Fort McMurray. There are two Anglican churches there, All Saints' and St. Thomas'; At time of writing we have no information as to the state of those buildings, but for sure many of their members will be amongst the evacuees.
