Accepting Donations for Woodridge Fire Victims

Six families have lost their homes in a fire that took place late Saturday night at Woodridge Terrace S.W., but the city is coming together, as usual, to to help those tenants who are now in need.

Our friends at Neighbourlink have stepped up to manage all donations for the residents. This will include both monetary and physical items that are being donated. The plan is to collect all donations from now until December 22, and hopefully have them out before the holidays.

Monetary donations will be used to purchase needed items and the remainder will be distributed as grocery gift cards. If you'd like to help out the families in need, please send donations to the address below, or phone Neighbourlink Donations at 403-538-7395.

Donations drop-off location is 3751 21st St NE

There were no injuries in the fire. But the six families that were living in the complex are now without homes.

Much thanks goes out to our friends at Red Cross, Community and Neighbourhood Services, Calgary Housing Company and Neighbourlink for their fantastic support thus far for affected residents.
