Clean-up and recovery efforts continue in Alberta, and CBC Calgary is holding "Back in the Saddle," an all-day fundraising event, tomorrow, Thursday July 4th, to benefit people who are trying to get back on their feet.
All funds raised will go to The Calgary Foundation, a group working to support long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts in Calgary and the surrounding area.
If you're in the city tomorrow, you can swing by CBC Calgary's offices at 1724 Westmount Boulevard N.W. and take part in some of the awesome festivities, and give donation in person.
Not in Calgary or can't make it out? You can donate online at thecalgaryfoundation.org or by calling 403-802-7700.
