One week after six tornadoes ripped through the Ottawa-Gatineau area causing severe damage and wide spread power outages, people are starting to pick up the pieces and move forward.
If you would like to help the people affected by this devastation, you can make a financial donation to the Ottawa-Gatineau Tornado Appeal – Ottawa Area or the Ottawa-Gatineau Tornado Appeal – Gatineau Area by contacting your local Canadian Red Cross office.

You can make donations in person at Salvation Army thrift stores. To arrange a donation pick-up for larger items, please call the toll-free donation line at 1-613-247-1435 ext. 228.
