The Abbotsford Canucks presented Archway Community Services with a cheque for $250,000 to assist with the agency’s continued flood relief and resiliency efforts at the April 9th game.
In total $1,170,000 has been donated this season to the local community through the Red Cross, Kidsport, Archway, the Canucks for Kids Fund 50/50 program and others.
“This fundraising milestone would not be possible without the incredible support from fans and the community who have embraced the team in our inaugural year,” said Rob Mullowney, Chief Operating Officer.
“We are committed to giving back to the community and touching lives in a way that makes a lasting difference. We plan to do even more in the years ahead.”
Flood Relief at Archway
The funds given to Archway will enable long-term support for those affected including providing essential food and household items, service navigation, counselling and more.
Since the flooding in November, Archway has distributed food, furniture, grocery and gas cards to hundreds of those affected. The Archway Emergency Response Worker is helping individuals navigate the relief efforts available and responding to needs as they arise.
“We’re so grateful to the Canucks organization for investing in the local community,” said Rod Santiago, Archway’s Executive Director.
“Recovery from the flooding is still ongoing for so many families and we’re encouraged by the continued support and collaboration of our community.”
