Flood Relief for Thunder Bay

On May 30, 2012, a State of Emergency was declared in Thunder Bay due to extensive flooding and damage caused by heavy rain.  The flood-ravaged town is asking Canadians to help locals cover the cost of fixing their damaged homes. The rains have stopped and the flood waters are receding, and Environment Canada is forecasting dry sunny weather for a while. But the damage will take longer to fix.

From June 11th until August 19th 2012, Mac’s Convenience stores is now accepting financial donations and is asking for your support to help those in need. Mac’s has several locations in the community of Thunder Bay. We feel it is our duty to support this community and provide immediate assistance in the reconstruction efforts. All of our stores across Ontario will be accepting donations to help the population of Thunder Bay. For more information please visit http://www.thunderbay.ca/City_Government.htm.
