One of MTS-ON’s original volunteers, Tanya Natyshak-Cole (our fearless Instagram person), connected with a bakery in London, Ontario to sell some beautifully decorated cookies in May. The bakery, Sticks and Scones Cakes , created Moon Time based cookies and donated menstrual items for every set sold. Alex, the owner of the bakery, alongside Victoria from Elephant in the Womb (a registered massage therapist who focuses on women’s health) were able to donate a total of 1126 pads and 519 tampons. Cookie sets are still available for order HERE!
True North Aid was the proud recipient of the Canadian Roots Exchange Community Support Fund for $5000. Through this fund, True North Aid is able to cover the shipping costs for backpacks that will be going to LaLoche and Clearwater Dene First Nation at a later date. This fund also covered the shipping costs for Canoe Lake Cree First Nation’s backpack delivery, which is part of our COVID-19 emergency relief efforts.
True North Aid was proud to support several shipments of personal protective equipment and educational materials in partnership with Finding Our Power Together, an indigenous lead group from Ryerson University. These shipments supported three First Nation communities in north western Ontario: Nibanimik, Eabametoong, and Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. True North Aid looks forward to working with this group to provide more shipments in the future.
