Last month we issued the Jani-King Alberta Fires Appeal to help raise funds in support of the Canadian Red Cross and their efforts providing relief to the tens of thousands Canadians affected by the devastating wildfires in Northern Alberta. The goal: raise a total of $20,000 by matching all donations made to the appeal up to a maximum of $10,000.
The final results are in and thanks to the generosity of you – our customers, franchise owners and colleagues; the Jani-King Appeal raised a total of $25,000!
“For many years, families from all parts of Canada, and especially from Atlantic Canada, have found meaningful employment in Alberta and in particular, in Fort McMurray,” says Murray Oxford, President of Jani-King Canada. “People from the East were welcomed, and made to feel apart of the Fort McMurray community. The Alberta Fires tragedy has seriously impacted the lives of Fort McMurray families. Many have lost everything. In an effort to give back and to aid those who have suffered, the Jani-King Franchise System, working in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross, is pleased to be able to donate $25,000 to the emergency relief efforts. We hope that our donation will help as the people of Fort McMurray to rebuild their lives and community.”
We are proud and humbled by the support that this campaign received from our customers, our franchise owners, and our colleagues throughout North America and beyond. On behalf of Jani-King, thank you.
