A big thank you to @walmartcanada for stepping up to provide support over the last few weeks during our disaster responses to flooding in New Brunswick and in the James Bay area in Ontario.

This generosity includes a donation of over $20,000 worth of water in New Brunswick and Walmart helped pre-position supplies to support people evacuated from Northern Ontario. #gratitude
