HSA donates to Red Cross wildfire relief efforts

HSA's Board and Directors has made a donation of $15,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help support the thousands of British Columbians affected by the BC wildfires.

The donation matches the $15,000 donated by HSA's national union, the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE).
More than 40,000 British Columbians -- including HSA members -- have been evacuated from their homes, with another 20,000 on evacuation alert.
"Our thoughts are with residents, emergency crews, and, in particular, the health care and social services workers in the region who are working tirelessly to support patients and clients in the region," said HSA President Val Avery.
"The Canadian Red Cross is on the ground providing help to those impacted by the disaster. And I encourage members to support those efforts by donating to the BC Wildfire Fund," Avery said.
