B.C. salmon farmers aid Haiti
The B.C. Salmon Farmer’s Association (BCSFA) on Wednesday announced that it donated USD 3,000 to help those devastated by the massive earthquake in Haiti earlier this month.
BCSFA donated the funds to ShelterBox, a non-profit organization that delivers immediate relief to victims of natural and other disasters. “ShelterBoxes” are large, rugged, green plastic containers that hold a 10-person tent and range of other equipment.
“We thought the ShelterBox concept was fantastic as it delivers the type of aid that makes an immediate difference to those in need,” said Mary Ellen Walling, BCSFA executive director. “We are so privileged and the need in Haiti so great. We hope others will join with us to support the Haitian people and to show the spirit of our aquaculture community.”
