Hydro One and GlobalMedic deliver more than 500 critical aid kits to Curve Lake First Nation

Curve Lake, ON, Dec. 10,  2020 – Today, Hydro One and GlobalMedic, a registered Canadian charity specializing in disaster relief, announced the delivery of more than 500 critical aid kits of food and safety supplies to Curve Lake First Nation to support those in need. As part of Hydro One’s commitment to build safe communities across Ontario, the company extended its partnership with Global​Medic to deliver additional food and safety supplies to First Nations communities. A total of 13,500 kits made up of staple food items, reusable face masks and soap will be provided to Indigenous communities across the province. Curve Lake First Nation will be distributing the kits at their physically distant Celebration of Sharing event on December 17, where community members can access additional supports including meals for the holidays.

“We are grateful to work with Indigenous communities during this challenging time,” said Penny Favel, Vice President Indigenous Relations, Hydro One. “Extending our partnership with GlobalMedic is one way we are able to support Indigenous communities and families, including Curve Lake First Nation, to help meet immediate needs.”

“Given the unprecedented nature of this pandemic, we are grateful to have the support of community partners such as Hydro One and GlobalMedic. With the higher rates of complicating health factors in First Nation communities every little bit of support we can provide goes a long way,” said Chief Emily Whetung, Curve Lake First Nation. “Distributing these kits at the start of the holiday season will help create a sense of security and support the health and wellbeing of our residents.”
