“After asking for sponsorship for events and holidays that we host, we were down to the wire for this Thursday April 18 when we are having our Easter/Elders Dinner at 3 p.m. I composed a donation letter for Save on Foods this morning and was met by open arms at the store by the Store Manager Paul Eckersley. He told me to go shopping and was so happy to help us out with our Easter Dinner this week,” says General Manager at Nawican Nicole De Vuyst.
The Nawican Friendship Centre is also looking for other holidays and events to be sponsored by community businesses or groups.
“We are a not for profit registered charity which welcomes everyone and anyone! Nawican actually means “Native-White-Canadian” and I don’t think that many people know that.”
