Labrador Offers Support to Families Affected by Tragedy

It is no trouble telling that Labrador will offer help when one of our own is in need.

And the recent unfortunate tragedy is no exception; in fact we are working harder to help those in need.

Lisa Ivany is the Recreation Director.

She sent a notice stating what the families need in terms of clothing, house wares and personal items.

Donations of size 7 boys’ pants and size 12/13 sneakers are needed at this time.

As well as size 9/10 pants and medium-size tops.

Size 8 and 11 shoes are being accepted for the two women.

The two men are in need of size 32/34 pants.

Along with large and extra large tops and size 10/11 sneakers.

Donations are being accepted at the Nain Inuit Community Government.

If you live in Goose Bay, items can be dropped off at the Friendship Centre.

Stan Oliver says they have been coordinating a drop off center for donations.

He says clothing, food and household items have been pouring in.

Oliver says they have about seven or eight boxes to be shipped to Nain.

In Postville, donated items can be given to Harriet Gear.

Elsie Wolfrey in Rigolet is also accepting donations for the families.

Susan Onalik works at the St. John’s Native Friendship Centre, she is also accepting donations.

There is also a bank account set up for the two families, if you wish to donate cash.

If you wish to do an interac e-mail money transfer to the account, e-mail

A luncheon is also being organized in Goose Bay by Rhona Parsons Rea.

The date and location is yet to be determined.

The Nunatsiavut Government is also selling tickets on four Inuit drums.

The tickets are $5 each and are being sold at the NG and the Post Office.
