A Forest Helicopters Inc. aircraft takes to the sky with hundreds of pounds of food and supplies headed for Northwest Angle #33 First Nation.

Ogimaawabiitong (Kenora Chiefs Advisory) is thankful for the support of our partners, staff, and volunteers for helping us deliver hundreds of pounds of food and supplies to those in need in one of our communities.

At this time of the year, the community and people of Northwest Angle #33 First Nation lose access to their ice road – their only connection to the mainland – due to the warm weather.

To help support community members in this time of need, Ogimaawabiitong organized and purchased a massive donation of food, supplies, medication, and more to give out to community members, with the support of Forest Helicopters Inc.

After loading up one of their crafts on April 16, Ogimaawabiitong and Forest Helicopter staff made multiple trips by helicopter to provide essential supplies to those in need in Northwest Angle #33 and distribute the supplies to community members.

We’d like to send a huge Miigwetch to everyone who was able to help out today, including Forest Helicopters Inc., the Wholesale Club, and KCA staff. KCA will continue to support the community as needed.
