MAX Canada makes gift to MDS for Fort McMurray efforts

October 18, 2016

MAX Canada Insurance and its Mutual Aid Ministries program recently presented an $80,000 gift to Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) to aid in the recovery and rebuilding of Fort McMurray, Alta., after a devastating wildfire earlier this year. Pictured (left to right) are Elaine Shantz, MAX Canada board chair; Paul Burns, MAX Canada underwriting manager; and Ross Penner, MDS Region V director of operations. “We were blown away when MAX called us and said they were going to make this gift,” said Penner. “It is a very significant gift, and it’s going to do so much to help Fort McMurray recover. Specifically, we will use these funds to provide meals, food and supplies for the MDS volunteers who will be going to Fort McMurray in the coming weeks.” –MAX Canada
