This weekend Canadian Red Cross volunteers are going door-to-door to hundreds of homes in Kawartha Lakes and Ramara affected by recent flooding to ensure families affected are safe and well, and have supplies to begin the process of recovering and cleaning their homes.
Thanks to the generosity of The Home Depot and the local community supporting a fundraising drive at various LCBO stores, the Red Cross is able to distribute clean-up kits that will help families restore their homes. The kits contain cleaning products and supplies, gloves, garbage bags and other items.
Some 300 kits were assembled by staff at The Home Depot store in Bracebridge this morning which will also be distributed to families in Bracebridge once water levels recede.
Red Cross volunteers have been on the ground in affected communities since the flooding began. More than 1,000 homes have been affected across the province.
