USJE donates to NS wildfire assistance

USJE has donated $5000 to the Red Cross to help those affected by the recent wildfires in Nova Scotia that destroyed or damaged more than 200 homes, and displaced 16,400 residents. Many of the evacuated families have no homes to return to or will be displaced for an indefinite period of time.

The Red Cross is matching donations and the money will be used to provide ongoing relief, recovery and resilience efforts in response to the wildfires, as well as support community preparedness and risk reduction for future disaster events within Atlantic Canada.
