The National Council of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has launched its appeal for emergency funds to help those affected by natural disasters in the country. Dangerous fires continue to spread across the country, forcing residents to evacuate their homes. Floods and other unpredictable events also pose threats to communities across Canada.

Donations will be used by our conferences and councils to supplement the efforts of first aid organizations, focusing on food and clothing. Every dollar donated will be matched by the National Council, up to a limit of $25,000.

People who want to help can donate here (select the "National Emergency Fund" option).
