In response to the devastating wildfires in the Northwest Territories, Vista Radio is partnering with the Salvation Army in Canada to help raise funds for evacuees across the Territory. Nearly seventy percent of the population have been affected and ordered to leave their homes and livelihoods while emergency crews work to get an unprecedented event under control.
With Vista Radio, a national fundraising initiative has been set up to with the Salvation Army, one of Canada’s most recognized charities, to provide relief to those most affected in the area. These funds will go directly to assist the population when they return to an area that has unknown, but potentially catastrophic, damage.
“This disaster of course directly affects the team at True North FM and My True North Now.com” says Bryan Edwards, President of Vista Radio. “This is Yellowknife and Hay River’s community voice and news source, and we are with the community at this time. We’re proud the entire company and country are coming together to support this cause”.
As of today, every Vista property will be promoting on air and online this important fundraising endeavor with hopes the nation will respond to the needs of the people of the Northwest Territories.
To donate, go to the Vista Radio home page at www.vistaradio.ca and click the Salvation Army Wildfire relief button. Qualifying donations will receive a tax receipt from the Salvation Army.
