United for Fort McMurray

Like all Canadians, United Way of Peel Region is heartbroken by the situation facing thousands of residents in Fort McMurray and its surrounding communities. We want to do everything we can to help.

With United Way Fort McMurray staff and volunteers currently affected by the evacuation order, United Ways  across Canada have been offering their help.

Even though we may not be directly affected by the events ongoing in Alberta, United Way of Peel Region stands united with Fort McMurray as residents and families begin the long road to recovery.

We will continue to work with our fellow United Ways to keep our community updated on the situation and relief efforts coordinated by United Way Centraide.

Canadians looking to support recovery efforts can donate to United Way Fort McMurray to support the community’s recovery and rebuilding efforts. By donating to United for Fort McMurray you will be helping residents recover from this disaster and return to their families. Donations will be used to help address the community’s important social needs, like housing, food assistance, trauma and mental health supports- the rebuilding of Fort McMurray’s entire social infrastructure. United Way will work with all levels of government and community partners to put these funds where they are needed most and will have the greatest impact.

Crisis situations like this can happen to anyone at any time. It is important in times like these that we continue to work together and support those in need.

Together we are possibly!
