Freddy Facts of the week
Last week Alberta was hit hard by tragedy. Worldwide news has covered what happened to Fort McMurray, with wildfires raging and destroying over 200,000 hectares of land. Thousands have been evacuated from there and surrounding towns, and we as a country have banded together to show our support.
Many of your at home are also wondering what you can do to help, so I’ve comprised a list of companies that are providing relief with donations and such.
For those who are a little short on giving a donation but still need to get some clothes, Freddy is donating $50 from every purchase in store and on line to Fort McMurray relief. Stop by Chinook mall lower level, at the Freddy Pant room, or go online to Freddy Pants Canada Freddy Pants USA

Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, many animals have been affected as well, you can donate directly to Fort McMurray SPCA to help save the fur babies.
As Albertans, as Canadians, as a world, we have all come together in a force to be reckoned with to help out our citizens in crisis. Let’s show those displaced that we will continue to help in this, their time of need.
