TORONTO, May 11, 2017 /CNW/ - RSA Canada is donating $50,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to assist with relief efforts following the spring floods in Quebec and across Canada.
The donation will be split in half with $25,000 going specifically to the Canadian Red Cross relief efforts in Quebec and the other $25,000 to support efforts across Canada in the areas that the Canadian Red Cross have determined are most in need of support.
In addition, RSA is matching the individual donations of employees across the country, looking to help in the wake of these devastating floods through the company's Matching Donation program.
"We are touched by the images we are seeing and our hearts go out to those affected by these terrible incidents," says RSA President and CEO Martin Thompson. "We have customers, brokers and friends in Quebec and other parts of the country who have been impacted by the spring floods. The rain may have stopped for now, but we know that the clean-up will be a long process. Our focus is on providing some immediate relief through this donation."
