What we as a community can do to help those affected by the Alberta Fires!

So many families are affected and need our support.  If we work together we can help them through this trying time. Shanti is offering FREE classes to all of the amazing volunteers as well as those affected by the fires.

Evacuation centres are doing their best to manage the needs of those displaced from their homes and the best way we can contribute to help support the rescue effort is with our donations. Cash donations can be made:

  • Online
  • Texting “redcross” to 30333
  • Telephone 1-800-418-1111
  • Donation box at Shanti

Every dollar donation made by an individual to the Red Cross is being matched by both the Federal and Provincial governments. So, for example, your $10 donation will be worth $30 in relief support!

If you prefer to make a non-monetary donation we will be accepting items which you can drop off at the studio.

What You Can Bring

The Edmonton Food Bank and Edmonton Emergency Relief Services (EERS) have specifically requested the following items that are most needed by evacuees and we ask that you only bring these items:

  • Diapers and baby wipes
  • NEW toiletries (soap, shampoo, tampons, toothpaste, razors, deodorant, etc.)
  • NEW pillows
  • NEW shoes
  • Donations for the Food Bank
  • Pet food

Let's give generously!
