BC Liquor Stores customers can support Red Cross Super Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines by making a donation at any of the 195 BC Liquor Stores located in communities throughout the province.
These donations will help the Red Cross provide urgently needed assistance in affected communities. This includes carrying out search and rescue operations, distributing food and mobilizing items like blankets, hygiene kits and sleeping mats.
From now until December 9, customers may make donations of $2 or $5 – or multiples thereof – at all checkouts in BC Liquor Stores. All donations received during this time will be matched by the federal government.
The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) has a long-term partnership with the Canadian Red Cross. Since 2010, BC Liquor Stores customers and employees have supported Red Cross disaster relief by contributing more than $1.7 million for humanitarian crises at home and abroad.
