DEADLINE EXTENDED for Atlantic Credit Unions’ Campaign for Donations to the British Columbia Fires Appeal

The Atlantic credit unions’ collection campaign for donations to the Canadian Red Cross British Columbia Fires Appeal has been extended to August 9th to allow credit unions more time to accept donations for this important cause.

In light of recent massive wildfires that have triggered evacuations in several communities across British Columbia, Atlantic Canadians are looking for ways to help. Atlantic Central, on behalf of Atlantic credit unions, is participating in a donation collection campaign to assist the Canadian Red Cross with its British Columbia Fires Appeal.

Donations may be made in person at any participating credit union in Atlantic Canada, or directly to the Canadian Red Cross. To find a credit union near you, please click here and search for the credit union by name, community, or postal code.

To donate directly to the Canadian Red Cross, you can:

  • Donate online at
  • Call 1-800-418-1111
  • Donate at your local Canadian Red Cross office
  • Send a cheque, payable to the Canadian Red Cross and earmarked “British Columbia Fires Appeal” to:

Canadian Red Cross National Processing Centre
PO Box 39
Saint John, NB, E2L 3X3

Tax receipts will be issued by the Canadian Red Cross for individual donations of $20 or more, and we advise donors that receipts will not be issued until after the close of the Canadian Red Cross campaign. Although our campaign is now updated to accept donations until August 9th, the Canadian Red Cross may close its relief campaign later than this date.

Atlantic credit unions wish to thank all donors for their support for this important cause. If you have any questions, please contact us at
