Communities across the province have recently been devastated by flooding and extreme weather. A public state of emergency was declared on November 17 to ensure resources can be delivered in a coordinated response to protect the public.
The LDB partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to support efforts in providing vital resources to communities affected by the recent extreme weather. All donations to this appeal will assist the Canadian Red Cross with carrying out relief, recovery, resiliency, and risk reduction activities in and beyond the affected regions, and at the individual and community levels. In addition to providing emergency relief through food, water and other essentials, money donated to this campaign will go towards providing financial support to those who have been affected to help with emergency expenses that they might encounter.
British Columbians donated to emergency efforts in multiples of $2 or $5 dollars at BCLIQUOR stores and governments of Canada and British Columbia will match every dollar donated. In addition, J.P. Wiser's will also be matching donations up to $25,000.
We thank our patrons for their generosity.
