Millrise fire donation information

Here is a video with The City of Calgary's Disaster Social Services about how they and the public can help those who were affected by the Millrise building fire.

Many Calgarians have contacted The City of Calgary with generous offers to assist evacuees of the Millrise fire. The City of Calgary and its partner agencies thank Calgarians for their generosity.

Non-Monetary Donations

The City of Calgary is not set-up to accept donations at this time. There are several social agencies in Calgary who are always in need of non-monetary donations, interested parties are encouraged to contact them to determine whether they accept Millrise-specific donations.

Monetary Donations

Medican, the developers of the condo where the fire took place, has been working with the Southview Alliance Church to facilitate monetary donations to assist those residents directly affected by the fire.

Cash donations can be dropped off at the Southview Alliance Church office, open daily until 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The church is located at 1436 James McKevitt Road SW. Cheques can be made out to 'Southview Alliance Church - Millrise Fire Relief'. Charitable receipts are available. Unfortunately, Southview Alliance is not able to receive donations other than cash.

The City is currently still assessing the immediate needs of evacuated residents and will provide details on a donation plan as soon as it becomes available.
