1840009_wayne-and-dana-mcneil-with-shannon-divall-right_smallJuly 2, 2013 – CRA Alberta president Jim Boddez and Alberta national president Marc Mandin are calling on members of the Canadian Rental Association to come to the assistance of the Alberta Red Cross to help flood relief efforts in Alberta. Boddez posted the following message on Facebook: "The recent floods in southern Alberta have caused wide spread devastation to many of the members of the Canadian Rental Association. Not only did the flood waters damage homes and businesses, it also has also pressed our membership into much longer hours of operations.

"Pumps, generators, heaters, dehumidifiers, skid steers, excavators, porta-potties, fans and cleaning equipment are still in great demand as people try and rebuild their lives. The Rental Industry is playing a crucial role in helping the community. As president of the Alberta Local , I’m proud to see how our industry has reacted to the disaster even when some of our own homes were underwater. In our company alone we have four employees who were evacuated and two who have probably lost most of their material possessions.

"Marc Mandin of 4-Way Equipment Rentals has put out a challenge to all rental houses and associate members to donate to the Red Cross Alberta. He has started the challenge with a $1,000 donation and has been matched by The Cat Rental Store. The CRA Alberta chapter will also be donating and the American Rental Association is willing to match. We would like to extend this donation challenge out to all CRA rental and associate members. You can donate directly at www.redcross.ca/donate/donate-online/donate-to-the-alberta-floods .

"Please send me an email at jboddez@catrents.ca if you have donated so I can track the generosity of our association."
