Thank you to all of the people that continue to so generously donate these most precious gifts for our Neighbours to the North;
beautiful hand-crafted knitting, quilting, generous donations of diapers and baby cleansing products, toiletries not to mention
all of the beautiful baby, children and teenager winter wear! We received books and games and hockey equipment too!
Thank you to all of the "logistics" volunteers in the ever widening circle of "community." Thank you to the Carter Farm Market
for continuing to host an ongoing drop box for donations!
A special shout out to Air Inuit, Montreal for their continued support providing free air freight for all of our shipments,
We are so grateful for all your donations but would like to stress, we ONLY need GENTLY USED or NEW BABY and CHILDREN'S DONATIONS.
Think of your donations as "gifts" for the Inuit babies and children. Through our "gifts", we are building loving relationships with our Northern friends.
A big part of our volunteer work includes "filtering" the many adult clothes and bedding that we received.
These items will not go to the Northern communities. The many thrift stores in the area would be delighted to receive your adult clothes,
bedding and other items. Please remember to sort your donations before passing along to the Inuit Outreach Program.

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem"
This song is a prayer for peace in Jerusalem.
