"Our thoughts are with our employees and the residents impacted by the fires in Northern Alberta," said Marc Poulin, President & CEO, Sobeys Inc. "We're proud to join forces with our customers to support the relief efforts of the Canadian Red Cross, while our team continues to work around the clock with partners to get much needed supplies to the area."
Sobeys Inc. is working directly with Noralta, the operator of three large workforce camps currently being used as evacuation centres for displaced residents, ensuring the availability of necessary provisions such as water, fresh fruit, baby food, pet food and hygiene products. Sobeys is also working closely with local relief organizations and agencies to determine where additional help and supplies are needed.
The in-store donation campaign began in Western Canada on May 4, 2016, and Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada on May 5, 2016.
