Congratulations to the Classes of 2016 and 2017 for their participation in raising over $8,000 over the past two weeks. These funds, in addition to collecting lightly-used clothing and toiletries, will benefit the Oshki Kizis Lodge.
Class of 2017 organizers Andre Ramgattie and Michael Bell presented the donations this morning to Barb and Francis from Minwasshin Lodge on behalf of the cohorts. Minwasshin Lodge operates the 21-bed shelter for First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are fleeing abuse. The shelter empowers women on their healing journey and assists them with accessing housing, financial, legal and medical resources. Further, the shelter also offers a wide range of services.
