What an eventful few weeks!
After the flooding here in Calgary, our office was in an evacuation zone for an incident involving a derailed train carrying hazardous materials. Thankfully, no one was hurt, and the situation was resolved very quickly and professionally by emergency responders.
Mel made the most of her extra long weekend by helping out with cleanup efforts around the flood area. It was dirty, exhausting work, and it’s not over yet. More pictures can be found at our Facebook page, but here are some of the highlights from the first few days:
There’s still a lot of work to be done in the affected areas, and we will still be supporting our friends at Samaritans Purse, and encouraging our employees to keep up their volunteer efforts. While we were fortunate enough to avoid direct consequences of the flooding as part of the community, we feel the impact on our neighbours, friends, family, and everyone we meet.
Your continued support of WORX gives us the opportunity to help out in our community… So we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us do “good worx”!
