Structured cabling supplier Transglobal Systems of Canada Inc. (TSOC) has pledged support for the Alberta Fires Appeal by donating 5% of all its product sales at the Graybar Canada (Edmonton and Calgary) locations between May 16 and August 31.
TSOC in partnership with Graybar Canada fulfilled the pledge to the Canadian Red Cross by the May 31 deadline to receive matching funds from the governments of Alberta and Canada.
The Canadian Red Cross campaign raised over $100 million to help resettle 80,000 displaced Albertans, rebuild 2,400 destroyed buildings and clear 229,000 hectares of land charred by the fires in the Fort McMurray region.
“TSOC and Graybar Canada wish to express gratitude to our customers for their patronage,” the two firms said in a release. “Through this collective initiative, we are able to help families, friends, and neighbours affected by the devastation.
