Shoppers can help support Red Cross drought relief efforts in the Horn of Africa by making donations at any BC Liquor Store.
The donations will provide men, women and children with necessary emergency relief, medical treatment and assistance to recover their livelihoods.
Until Thursday, Sept. 15, customers are able to make donations of $2 or $5 – or multiples thereof – at all BC Liquor Store checkouts. All provincial donations will be matched by the government of Canada.
As BC Liquor Stores are unable to issue tax receipts for donations, customers requiring the receipts are encouraged to donate directly to the Canadian Red Cross.
The government of Canada will match individual donations to the Horn of Africa until Sept. 16.
