Holcim chipping in for Alberta flood victims
June 28, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
Holcim Canada Inc. and its Dufferin Construction division announced they will donate funds through the Canadian Red Cross to help flood victims in southern Alberta.
Both Holcim and Dufferin have operations in Western Canada, including major infrastructure projects in Calgary and cement distribution terminals in Alberta.
Nick Caccavella, senior vice-president with Holcim Canada, said the company takes pride in being a responsible member of the communities where they live and work. “We do what we can to protect the health and security of those communities and that of our neighbours,” he said. “Our thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with those impacted by the recent flooding and we hope for their safety as recovery efforts continue.”
The Red Cross is grateful for the donation from Holcim as it will help sustain relief effort, said Conrad Sauvé, secretary general and CEO for the Canadian Red Cross. “Donations such as this will ensure that the Canadian Red Cross can continue its work in Alberta to help those families who have been affected by the flooding.”
