Several of Canada’s biggest banks have announced donations to the Red Cross Relief Fund in Canada to support relief and humanitarian efforts in Haiti, following Tuesday’s major earthquake.
TD Bank Financial Group, Royal Bank of Canada and CIBC Group of Companies each announced donations of $100,000 to Red Cross on Wednesday.
“We’re pitching in to help out however we can during this time of devastation,” said Frank McKenna, deputy chair of TD Bank Financial Group.
RBC noted that the most urgent needs identified by the Red Cross are for search and rescue efforts, field hospitals, emergency health services, water purification, emergency shelter, logistics and telecommunications. The bank requested that, where appropriate, its donation to the Red Cross be directed to ensuring survivors have access to clean drinking water.
“The scale of this disaster is enormous and its impact has been devastating to thousands of people and their communities,” said Gordon Nixon, president and CEO of RBC. “On behalf of our clients and employees, we are proud to support the relief effort with a donation.”
“The devastation in Haiti is massive, and all of us at BMO are deeply saddened by the news,” ~ Bill Downe, president and CEO of BMO Financial Group
