The devastation left behind by the Fort McMurray wildfires is unprecedented and profound. And yet, we know the outpouring of overwhelming support and kindness will be the true legacy left behind.
As a community of project management professionals, we understand risks and challenges; we care and feel compelled to reach out and offer help to our members and the broader community who have been impacted by this disaster.
What is PMINAC doing to help?
PMINAC board members are reaching out to call the 300+ chapter members living in and around Fort McMurray to offer assistance and support. In addition, the board will be making a donation to the Red Cross on behalf of the chapter. We are also investigating other ways we can provide support through our chapter. We will provide an update on our efforts at our next meeting scheduled May 11th.
What can YOU do to help?
As a PMINAC member, you can make our efforts count and create a greater impact:
1. Make a personal donation to the Red Cross
3. Bring urgently-needed items such as diapers, baby wipes, toiletries, new socks and other personal hygiene items to our May 11th dinner meeting. We will gather these items and deliver them to the Edmonton Emergency Relief Services centre downtown.
