Help and Donations for Telegraph Creek Fire Relief Efforts
AFNYukon / August 10, 2018
As fires continue to roar in Telegraph Creek, our hearts are with the Tahltan Nation and all those affected. The community has been evacuated, homes have been lost and infrastructure damaged.
There are several ways you can help those impacted by these fires.
The Tahltan Central Government has set up an official donation channel. They are accepting email money transfers at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the security answer “telegraph.” For other ways to make a donation visit this website.
