Flood Relief and Support for YYC

At this time, United Way is encouraging Calgarians to support the Canadian Red Cross (www.redcross.ca) and YYChelps (http://yychelps.ca/) in their flood relief and volunteer efforts. Together, we'll do what it takes to keep this a great city for everyone.

We are posting regular updates on social media about the needs of human service agencies who are serving the city's most vulnerable people at this challenging time. Follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/calgaryunitedway) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/unitedwaycgy) to get these updates.

The Kahanoff Centre, where United Way has its offices, is closed because of flooding. It will remain closed until the damage is assessed and the safety of tenants can be assured. Staff are to stay home until they hear otherwise. Updates for staff will be posted on social media.

If you are trying to get a hold of somebody with United Way and do not have their direct contact information, please send us a message on Facebook or Twitter and we will do our best to connect you.

Thank You.
