Ice jams on the Athabasca and Clearwater Rivers have caused flooding in the northern Alberta city of Fort McMurray and forced 13,000 people to leave their homes. They will return to water damaged homes and businesses, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, procuring cleaning supplies will be difficult. With products donated by Procter & Gamble, and airfreight donated by the Air Canada Foundation, GlobalMedic has activated our Flood Response Program and assembled and shipped 200 Clean Up Kits containing gloves, laundry detergent, Mr.Clean and other cleaning supplies to support families in Fort McMurray. The kits are being delivered in coordination with the Government of Alberta and Samaritan’s Purse.
