Aid for Fort McMurray
Many families here have a direct connection to Fort McMurray and we all have a role to play in helping all who have been impacted by the destruction. MCHS and GSACRD are looking to help in any way possible. We are also working with the Town of Morinville on this project.
1. We will be collecting donations for the Edmonton Emergency Relief Services, who are coordinating many of the efforts in the region. We are accepting items for distribution: diapers, baby wipes, new toiletries and new socks and underwear. All items donated at MCHS will then be transported to the main processing location in Edmonton for distribution to the evacuees.
2. The Red Cross is accepting cash donations, to be used to directly help in the relief work. Any cash donations given to MCHS for this will be provided to the Red Cross, or you may contact the Red Cross directly.
3. We will be accepting placement of any students who have been evacuated from that region. These students and their families are asked to contact us at the school to arrange to get these students into classes. We do have school supplies and backpacks that will be provided to them.
If you know of anyone displaced by this tragedy, have them contact the school to get them into class. All donations will be accepted.
