Honda Canada Foundation has donated $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in support of the Spring Flood Appeal for relief and recovery efforts in Quebec.

The money has been allocated to assist the Canadian Red Cross with valuable aid in the area, including providing flood victims with support such as reception and information, registration and family reunification, emotional well-being support, lodging, food, first aid, and providing cots and blankets.

"Honda's intention is to support the many individuals and families devastated by the recent floods in Quebec, as supporting Canadians in times of need is a key pillar of the Foundation's mission," says Dave Jamieson, chairman of the Honda Canada Foundation. "As we have responded to past natural disasters at home and abroad, supporting the Canadian Red Cross is an effective way to quickly help those affected.  Honda encourages all Canadians to donate to the Canadian Red Cross at this time in order to assist the most vulnerable citizens affected by this severe situation."

The Honda Canada Foundation is committed to giving back to communities across Canada and is involved with several national and local organizations including Earth Rangers, Rick Hansen Foundation, CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish and Make-A-Wish Canada.

Formed in 2005, the Honda Canada Foundation (HCF) aims to enable the realization of dreams through various annual philanthropic activities and funding to non-profit registered charities across Canada where Honda associates live, work and play. The HCF focuses on four key pillars – family, environment, engineering and education – and each year more than $1 million is dispersed to groups in need through more than 500 grants.  More than five million Canadians have benefited from Honda Canada- and Honda Canada Foundation-funded charitable programs.
