Our Iridia in the Community initiative applied to all of our employees, including our Remote Employees throughout the province. Here’s what they did with their $100:
Tracy is involved with a group called Helping our Northern Neighbours, which is dedicated to helping people who live in remote areas in Northern Canada, primarily Nunavut. As the costs of food are very high, people have difficulty affording many basic amenities. We received a very kind message on our Facebook wall, thanking Tracy for the donation:
Alongside that Tracy also provided 4 swimming passes to families in need for the North Peace Leisure Pool.
Mark went and did one of our most unique initiatives, by providing a small gift to support staff at his camp in North Liard. He even filmed his own interview and provided some great shots!
Alandra chose to provide a donation to the Special Friends Program at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre. The organzations provide food, warm clothing and hygiene kits for the homless in Fort St. John.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the Iridia in the Community contributions so far. We will have more videos for you on Monday! If you haven’t already, check out our first post which explains where the idea came from and our other staff interviews.
