Across the country, and especially in Alberta, there has been an outpouring of support for those displaced by the Fort McMurray wildfires. Canadians have opened their homes, hearts and wallets to support the people who live and work in Fort McMurray.
For their part, the staff at ACP felt compelled to make a donation to a local relief society. The fundraising effort was spearheaded by Kathy Kalyta, complaints resolution administrator, who collected funds and purchased much-needed items for the Edmonton Emergency Relief Services Society. The organization has been providing relief for victims of fire and disaster since 1986, as well as providing affordable goods and services to low income families, and the working poor.
ACP thanks all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who have provided pharmacy services to those displaced by the fire. We appreciate the time and energy you put in to ensure that evacuees requiring drug therapy receive quality care, in addition to managing the needs of your regular patients. Please refer to the initial guidance provided by ACP or give us a call at 780-990-0321 with any questions about providing pharmacy services to temporarily displaced individuals.
