HOW PEOPLE CAN HELP
Once the immediate crisis needs have been taken care of, more help will be needed for those affected as they begin the long road toward personal and community-wide recovery.
Donate at unitedforbcwildfires.ca
Your donation will help rebuild the strength and resilience of the communities devastated by the BC Wildfires by addressing important social needs and rebuilding social infrastructure. Funds will be invested where they are needed most and will have the greatest impact – supporting both short-term recovery and long-term rebuilding efforts.
United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo (Charitable registration number 119278257 RR 0001) is the local United Way that will need your support to meet the community needs when the rebuild begins.
Sign up to volunteer
United Ways are currently building a database of volunteers to mobilize once recovery and rebuilding efforts are underway.
Get support at bc211.ca
Help is available online through live web-chat at bc211.ca – a resource that can connect those affected by the wildfires to housing, financial assistance, food, trauma and mental health support.
