Metro donates $1.6 M+ to Ukraine humanitarian crisis


Metro Inc. is donating $1,653,000 to help the people of Ukraine through the Canadian Red Cross. The money was raised via a company-wide fundraising campaign with customers of its food and pharmacy banners and includes a Metro donation of $1,000,000 given in early March.

“A sincere thank you to Metro, which has once again offered to use its network of food stores and pharmacies to support our current and future efforts in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.” says Janet Johnson, chief development officer, Canadian Red Cross. “The funds raised through the generosity of the banners’ customers provide emergency assistance on the field, including essential medical supplies, food, drinking water, clothing, shelter, personal hygiene items, fuel and other emergency supplies.”
