How to support the people in Attawapiskat.

Below is a list of items that community members said they needed, and a collection point for shipping from Ottawa. Note the specific dates - this is a one-time thing. The group organizing the collection and shipping has a facebook page if you want to learn more: https://m.facebook.com/annieandcompany/.



Every person, group, business or organization is welcome to bring the donation of items in Ottawa for free shipping from Ottawa to Attawapiskat providing that the items are from the list below and that they are either new or in gently used condition.

The items can be dropped off between the hours of 10AM and Noon ONLY, on Saturday April 30th, Saturday May 7th and Saturday May 14th, at the Dymon Storage located 1830 Walkley Road in Ottawa. Those wishing to ship items to Ottawa for free shipping to Attawapiskat can contact us.

The items listed below are the only items accepted for shipping at this time and those marked with a star (*) are those which are most needed. This list was created in consultation with Attawapiskat leaders and teachers.

Thank you for your support and you are encouraged to personalize your own shipping boxes so Attawapiskat knows who the items are coming from!
