"The Canadian Red Cross and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. have a long-standing partnership in responding to relief efforts in disaster situations. We are in full support to raise funds to help those affected in the fires,” said Queenie Choo, CEO of S.U.C.C.E.S.S.”

“Whether it’s an international disaster or one right here in B.C. like the current wildfires, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. is by our side, mobilizing the generosity of the community,” said Kimberley Nemrava, Canadian Red Cross Vice-President for B.C. & Yukon. “Donations will help provide relief for those affected by the wildfires in the form of cots, blankets, family reunification, as well as financial assistance so individuals and families can get the food, clothing, shelter, and other necessities now, and in the weeks and months ahead.”

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and the Canadian Red Cross entered a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in July 2010 to strengthen community support and fundraising efforts of the Red Cross in response to international disasters.

Since the establishment of the partnership, the two organizations have worked together to raise funds for a series of national and international disasters including the Pakistan and China floods in 2010, the Japan earthquake, and famine and drought in the Horn of Africa in 2011, the Sichuan (Ya’an) earthquake in China and the Philippines’ Haiyan typhoon in 2013, the Nepal earthquake in 2015 as well as the Fort McMurray fire in 2016.
