Bolton Flood Residents Fund

$4,578 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 68 people in 5 months
My name is Mira Budd, a Caledon resident, hoping that with your help we can help our community and the families affected by the flooding of the Humber River in Bolton, Caledon, Ontario.

As most of you know the rising waters of the Humber River flooded parts of the east side of downtown Bolton forcing residents to evacuate their homes.  (A week later and some are still not back into their homes March 22nd, 2019)

Although some residents may have flood insurance others do not and although we as a community may not be able to raise funds to help with that, we can certainly try to help with the day to day necessities.

Marion Upshall, Sherry Brioschi and I have gathered a list of families with no insurance for a total of 8 families with no insurance.

We will give each of those families $300.00 each and the rest we will keep until June 15th as we will be going door to door to see if there are any others. If no more families with no insurance or renting come forward at that time the rest of the money will be divided evenly among the original 10 families. I will be withdrawing the money and giving it to the families via certified cheque.

If you are able, please consider donating to help the residents during this difficult time. 

NOTE: The funds raised from the Bolton Flood Fundraiser Event which will be held April 27th, at Sammy's Grill will also be added to the GoFundMe Fund.

Thanks to everyone involved in helping the community including our Mayor Allan Thompson, Councilor Groves and all other council members involved, Caledon Fire and Emergency Services, OPP, TRCA, EMS from neighboring communities, our Town, the Region, the Caledon residents, local businesses that stepped up and everyone else involved during this difficult time.

On behalf of the families affected we would like to thank everyone for their generosity. Although it's a month later and most of the families with no flood insurance are only a quarter way through all that has to be done to get their life back in order these funds are making a great difference.

The Bolton Families Flood fundraiser event yesterday also raised $1213.00 for a total of $5085.21. for information and photos click link https://lifeology101.com/2019/04/28/bolton-flood-fundraiser-sammys-grill/

Please share the GoFundMe page. These families need so much more as most won't even get much coverage from the Disaster Relief Fund.

Thank you in advance!

Today, on this rainy Sunday, Marion, Sherry and I delivered 8 $300.00 money drafts to the families with no flood insurance or renting that have lost so much due to the flood. We were greeted with smiles, hugs and even some tears were shed. Although $300 may not seem like much these families need all the help they can get and they are so thankful to each and every one of you that have donated to the GoFundMe page.

The GoFundMe will be open until June 15th at which time all the rest of the funds will be divided among the families with no insurance or renting so PLEASE if you can DONATE so that we can help them to put their lives back together.

A GREAT BIG THANKS TO MY BANK as they did not charge me the $8.00 it costs per draft.
