Wildfires across British Columbia continue to force families from their communities, and our thoughts are with those who are being affected. Many of your Success By 6 colleagues, community partners and the many children and families that are the focus of the initiative, have had to leave their homes and are waiting in uncertainty.
One of the provincial partners of Success By 6, the United Way is mobilizing efforts through United for BC Wildfire Recovery. They are working with the Red Cross, local municipalities, regional districts and Emergency Operations Centres on coordinated efforts.
A fundraising campaign has been launched to raise funds for important social needs like finding permanent housing, food assistance, trauma and mental health supports, and rebuilding the capacity of social service agencies. Funds raised through this initiative will stay in BC to support the greatest needs of affected communities.
