Now that the holiday season is in full swing, members of the First Nations Health & Social Secretariat of Manitoba (Nanaandawewigamig) put together a Christmas feast Dec. 5 for some members of Thompson’s homeless population.
Outside of the good food, this event, which took place at St. Lawrence Hall, also featured live music from A Rebel Named Riel and an appearance from Santa Claus himself, who helped distribute care packages containing warm clothing for the winter months.
According to event organizer Candace McCorrister, the purpose of this event was to not only provide some of Thompson’s less fortunate residents with a hot meal, but to also let them know that their organization has an sub-office set up in town where they can inquire about Indigenous health issues.
