On June 21, southern Alberta was impacted by devastating floods. Relief efforts commenced to ensure the safety of our neighbours, and thousands rallied together to help clean up affected communities.
Alliance Pipeline is proud to announce a $100,000 total commitment to various initiatives to support flood relief efforts. This contribution includes:
The floods essentially wiped out the CEPF, claiming all of the desks, file cabinets, printers and computers. This donation will have a significant impact on the CEPF, and will cover 50 percent of their flood related damages, which are not covered by the government or insurance.
- Canadian Red Cross Society: $25,000
- The Canadian Red Cross has received 50 percent of the projected $25 million dollars needed for flood relief, and will assist those affected by the disaster. All employee donations were matched dollar-for-dollar to reach our $25K donation.
- Calgary Zoo: $15,000
- The not-for-profit Calgary Zoo sustained millions of dollars in damages, laying off 60 percent of their staff, and was forced to move some animals away permanently. Due to the extensive damages, the zoo is not expected to fully re-open until later this fall.
- Calgary Public Library (CPL): $15,000
- The Calgary Public Library was
also significantly impacted by the flood. The Central Library was forced to
close due to extensive damage, and the electronic infrastructure was shut down.
Donating to the Library Recovery Fund will allow the CPL to respond to current
and unforeseen needs.
As part of Alliance Pipeline's Community Investment Program, Alliance is pleased to support various organizations that focus on safety, education, and community development.
