Kraus donates $10,000 to the Red Cross Relief efforts in Southern Alberta

WATERLOO, ON, July 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Kraus Group of Companies donates $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Southern Alberta Relief efforts.

An estimated 100,000 residents throughout Southern Alberta have been evacuated from their homes and businesses over the last two weeks due to dangerous flood levels. It is estimated that the infrastructures damage throughout the flood areas exceeds $256.6 million, based on an early assessment by city officials in Calgary, AB. Recovery efforts could take up to 3-years for many Albertans as the level of destruction is substantial.

"Kraus has been very fortunate over the past year and as a proud Canadian company with business ties to the community, we feel it is our social responsibility to contribute to the relief efforts during such a trying time for Alberta," comments Steve Malinowski, CEO and President of Kraus Group of Companies. "Our thoughts are with the many people affected by this tragedy."
