 Lotus Light Fundraiser to Support BC Wildfires Relief Efforts

Lotus Light Charity Society (Vancouver) will be holding emergency fundraising collections to support the BC Fires Appeal launched by The Canadian Red Cross. Lotus Light’s volunteers will be setting up collections at transit accessible locations in Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond.

“We stand in support of all communities affected by BC wildfires and The Canadian Red Cross who are working at the front lines of this sustained state of emergency,” said Master LIan Tzi, President of Lotus Light Charity Society. “We simply need to help our fellow British Columbians during this difficult time.”

Currently massive, aggressive wildfires have triggered a state of emergency in British Columbia’s interior, with 220 active fires rapidly spreading across BC. Urgent support is needed for an estimated 14,000 British Columbians evacuated from their home communities.

The remains of mobile homes destroyed by wildfire are seen at a trailer park in Boston Flats, B.C., on Sunday July 9, 2017. B.C. government officials now estimate that 7,000 people have been evacuated from their homes due to wildfires burning in the province. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck
