PepsiCo Canada and The PepsiCo Foundation are working with the Canadian Red Cross to provide British Columbia residents with much-needed assistance with a $125,000 grant.
Through the British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal, the Canadian Red Cross will carry out relief, recovery, and risk reduction activities in and beyond the region, such as:
- Ensuring emergency lodging for evacuees who have nowhere else to go.
- Providing families with necessities such as food and clothing.
- Providing tailored emotional support to survivors coping with loss and hardship.
"Our local teams are working tirelessly to support the Canadian food supply despite the challenges they're personally facing," says Cara Keating, president of PepsiCo Foods Canada. "We're so grateful to our local teams, the Canadian Red Cross and the countless local organizations for their tireless efforts to support those who have been impacted by these floods."
