UFV co-led disaster relief fund raises $4.4M to support flood recovery in Abbotsford

The Abbotsford Disaster Relief Fund launched by the University of the Fraser Valley, Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, and Abbotsford Community Foundation has raised $4.4M over the past year. The fund was created within two days of the November 2021 floods to support recovery work. 80% of the funding has already been distributed to local farmers, businesses, and front-line grassroots organizations. “It was incredibly moving and inspiring to watch our community come together so quickly to support each other through this dark period,” said Anita Nielsen, executive director of advancement at UFV. “As a coalition, we felt it was vital to provide immediate financial aid to flood victims while working alongside other community partners to assess and address the longer-term impact.” Abby News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
