CALGARY, June 25, 2013 /CNW/ - FirstEnergy Capital is pledging to donate a minimum of $100,000 to the
Southern Alberta Emergency Relief Fund and invites our clients and our
community to cumulatively match this donation. Donations will go to
support organizations helping to rebuild Southern Alberta following the
devastating floods. Contributions will be sent to Place2Give.com and
directed to a fund designated specifically to support local
organizations focused on flooded areas and their relief requirements.
Since its inception in 1993, FirstEnergy Capital has been supporting our
community and as we mark our 20th Anniversary this September, we recognize our success has been a result
of supporting companies and our community from a grassroots level. Over
the years, we have partnered with and supported many organizations and
companies that have grown and prospered and the impact back to the
community is significant. As a result of the floods, the needs in
Southern Alberta are vast and FirstEnergy Capital is committed to
supporting our clients and the charities that make our community
The Southern Alberta Emergency Relief Fund is comprised of registered
charities identified to be working on the front lines of the flood.
These charities support those with the highest needs and their ability
to make a direct impact to those in need. All funds will be disbursed.
Donations can also be made to an undesignated fund that will be
directed to charities with the greatest identified requirements.
FirstEnergy invites our clients and community to contribute and support
these vital charities in any way possible. We appreciate that support
comes in many ways, and want to acknowledge and thank everyone helping
to rebuild Southern Alberta.
All donations will receive a full charitable receipt. Matching
donations can be made in two ways: forward a cheque payable to
Place2Give to FirstEnergy Capital, Flood Relief, or by online donation
