Over a thousand of you pitched-in to help our neighbours in Erlton, Rideau-Roxboro, Bridgeland and Inglewood over the last several days.
It’s been an amazing show of community support. HUGE thanks!
We’re now moving that passion westward to Bowness, where our fellow Calgarians are cleaning up and need many extra hands.
So pack-up your gear and meet us there!
Friday, June 28 at 10 am (we will be here coordinating until 5pm)
And there’s still plenty of work to be done in our Ward 9 neighbourhoods of Erlton, Rideau-Roxboro and Bridgeland-Riverside.
These communities are running muster stations to coordinate volunteers and donations:

Rideau-Roxboro: 3030 4th Street SW
Bridgeland-Riverside: Community Hall at 917 Centre Avenue NE. Inglewood: either DaDe Art & Design, 1327 9th Avenue SE or at the Inglewood Community Association,1740 24th Avenue SE.
