WINNIPEG, July 8, 2014 - RBC Royal Bank yesterday announced a $30,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross in support of Canadians affected by extensive moisture and rising flood waters in communities across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
“We extend our hearts to every client, colleague, and community affected by the devastation of rising flood waters,” shared RBC Regional President Kim Ulmer. “In addition to the financial relief we will be extending to our valued clients, we are committed to doing what we can to support families and communities in need through this donation.”
Among some of the steps being taken by RBC in support of customers affected by the flooding, RBC customers may postpone residential mortgage and personal loans payments by up to two months. In addition, clients may be eligible to have their credit card minimum monthly payments set to $0 for up to 4 months.
“We are committed to being there for our customers so that they are able to focus on what really matters most – their families,” said Ulmer. “We look forward to exploring a tailored plan with each customer to meet their individual needs.”
Anyone interested in making donations to the Red Cross may do so at any RBC Royal Bank branch, earmarking the funds to either the “Manitoba Floods” or “Saskatchewan Flood” appeals.
