What do we consider an “emergency”?
An emergency is an urgent, unforeseen event such as a fire, flood, domestic violence incident, a child being placed in foster care with their pet, homeless in inclement weather etc. An emergency is NOT – expecting delivery outside our Wednesday delivery because you have run out of food and didn’t request far enough in advance, or requesting a hamper for a newly acquired pet you are not financially able to support. Applications can be submitted and if approved will be delivered on the following Wednesday.
Our volunteers will respond as soon as possible to actual emergency events.
In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
