Thursday, August 3, 2017 @ 11:21 AM

Prince George, B.C. – BC Liquor Stores’ customers have donated more than $340,000 to the Canadian Red Cross for those suffering from this summer’s wildfire crisis.

BC Liquor Stores started its partnership with the Red Cross on July 10 to provide financial relief to those impacted by fires around the province.

They’ve done so by donating in increments of $2, $5 or more. All funds raised go directly to the Red Cross and help provide evacuees with shelter, food and water.

Local liquor companies have also shown their compassion by donating directly to the Red Cross up to $2 from select products sold in BC Liquor Stores. As a result, an additional $69,500 has been raised.

The Red Cross is also recruiting more volunteers – particularly in Prince George, Kamloops or Williams Lake.
