Giant Tiger Supports Lac-Megantic

OTTAWA, ONTARIO - (Marketwired - July 16, 2013) - Participating Giant Tiger locations in the province of Quebec will be raising funds and rounding up for the Canadian Red Cross and the residents of Lac-Mégantic.

When customers arrive at the checkout they will be asked if they would like to round up their total to the next dollar and give the difference to the Red Cross. Funds raised will be topped up by Giant Tiger Stores.

"Our thoughts are with the residents, relief and support workers affected by the tragedy in Lac-Mégantic," offers Greg Farrell, President and COO, Giant Tiger Stores Limited. "Lac-Mégantic is firmly entrenched in the hearts of all Canadians. We are hopeful that the assistance offered will benefit the families and the community at large during this very difficult time."

Giant Tiger Stores Limited is committed to corporate stewardship and supporting its surrounding communities. Through various programs and outreach initiatives Giant Tiger donates more than $2 million dollars annually to more than 700 associations and charities across Canada.
