Christmas Hampers across Saskatchewan

Happy Holiday’s

Our Friendship Centres across Saskatchewan are celebrating the Holiday’s by providing their communities with a remarkable amount of Christmas hampers, children’s gifts, and also whole turkeys!  

Some of our friends such as Leonard Montgrand at La Loche Friendship Centre say that in partnership with Métis Nation Saskatchewan, they were able to offer 422 family food Visa’s worth $100! Such a great contribution to families in the local community… and Jackie Kennedy in North Battleford, at the Battleford Indian & Métis Friendship Centre, had to say:

“We handed out 200 hampers on December 10th. Altogether 200 turkeys and 100 hams were distributed to families to help those in need.”

Ron Woytowich, the Executive Director of Kikinahk Friendship Centre in La Ronge, exclaimed that Kikinahk distributed 240 hampers to very thankful people. At the North West Friendship Centre in Meadow Lake, Gladys Joseph said they gave out 50 hampers to families and also seniors.

Raymond Laliberte, the Executive Director of Saskatoon Indian & Métis Friendship Centre had to say:

“200 hampers given out to families from SIMFC with gifts for children included. We will also have a Christmas ‘come and go’ dinner Dec 23rd at the centre. We anticipate 400 plus meals… childrens toys and cleaning supplies in the packages.”

Adding to that, Jennifer Whitecap in Saskatoon says, “on top of the Christmas hampers, we’ve handed out well over 1000 hampers for COVID Relief.”
