We are looking for volunteers to assist us with collecting household items for Paspew House in Fort Chipewyan. The donation drive will be held at Superstore downtown on November 4, 2017 and we will have a collection table inside.
Paspew House is a women’s emergency shelter owned and operated by the Mikisew Cree First Nation. The shelter had 8 beds and is located in the hamlet of Fort Chipewyan. The shelter opened in 1992. The shelter does a lot of violence prevention awareness work and arts and crafts geared towards women talking together.
