Employee Donations Support the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Wildfire Relief Efforts

CALGARY, May 31, 2011 /CNW/ - Employees of Golder Associates Ltd. in Alberta are supporting the Canadian Red Cross' Alberta Wildfire relief efforts by making online donations. From May 18 through June 13, Golder employees can make an online donation or contribute cash/cheque directly. The Golder offices in Alberta will match employee contributions for this period dollar for dollar top a maximum of $15,000. Significant damage forced the evacuation of dozens of communities, including the Town of Slave Lake. Canadian Red Cross Disaster teams responded immediately, mobilizing personnel and emergency supplies including hundreds of cots, blankets and personal hygiene supplies to assist evacuated families.

"We have an opportunity to help an Alberta community where our employees have friends and family," says Greg Herasymuik, Managing Principal, Prairies Region. "As a corporate citizen, Golder has a responsibility to encourage and support its employees in activities that build, preserve, and strengthen community vitality."

The Canadian Red Cross helps vulnerable communities in Canada and around the world affected by emergencies and disasters—situations ranging from individual house fires to natural disasters like floods that can disrupt an entire region. Canadians wishing to support the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Response efforts are encouraged to contribute by calling 1-800-418-1111, donating through redcross.ca, or contacting their local Red Cross office. Cheques should be made payable to the Canadian Red Cross, earmarked "Alberta Fires" and mailed to the Canadian Red Cross National Office, 170 Metcalfe Street, Suite 300, Ottawa, Ontario, K2P 2P2.
