Australia Fires - Disaster Relief
As you are aware, in recent weeks, hundreds of forest fires in Australia have killed dozens, destroyed thousands of homes and threatened many local species with extinction. At present, more than 10 million hectares of bush, forest and parks in the country have been impacted.

Locally, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, fondly known as Vinnies, has volunteers on the ground in hundreds of communities across the country helping people as they deal with the immediate aftermath of fires as well as the long-term recovery.

Relief funds are being channeled through our Australian St. Vincent de Paul partners and 100% of the donations are being used to support those who have been affected.

Those wishing to help may do so in the following ways:

  • Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: www.archtoronto.org;

  • By phone through the Development Office - 416-934-3411;

  • Through the parish, making cheques payable to: St. Wilfrid's Parish - Australia Fires – Disaster Relief Humanitarian Relief Envelopes are available in the lobby.
