300 TURKEYS FOR KASHCHEWAN FIRST NATIONS $10,000 NEEDED FOR PURCHASE AND TRUCKING - AIRLIFT PROVIDED Our Relay For Hunger Project is seeking funds to send 300+ turkey's, and other food supplies to the remote community of Kashchewan First Nations.
On October 12, 2017, in partnership with "Relay For Hunger", "Honouring Indigenous Peoples" and the "Gleaners Food Bank of Quinte Region Tri-County Food Network", 50 pallets of food surplus (cereal, soup, crackers) & diapers were trucked to a warehouse in Timmins Ontario. True North Aid, along with other partners, will work to see that every pallet is transported to northern Ontario communities to support local school breakfast programs and food banks. Prices are still being negotiated but estimates are approx $500 for each pallet. No child in Canada should have to go hungry! Help us today! Donate
Thank you so much for your contribution of time and resources to Mushkegowuk Council Food bank initiative. As you know, needy families and individuals in our communities go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day due to a variety of factors including low wages, unemployment, injuries, illness, age or domestic violence among others. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children and the elderly are at the most risk, and they make up the largest number of vulnerable folks in the communities we serve. With the generous support of people and organizations like you, we will be able to help many of these families and individuals not only to meet essential daily needs, but to work toward getting them back on track.Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support and assistance. Sincerely, John Okonmah - Director Regional Economic Development
