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.
