2020 – 2021 Donors
Pandemic Support Partners
The on-going support for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Battlefords focusing on youth engagement, support, and mental health programming was supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) and Community Foundations of Canada.
We were able to provide match re-connection opportunities, activity kits, safety supplies, tablets, and staff support throughout the summer thanks to their generous grant!
Our friends at LB Distillery provided our office and programming with a case of hand sanitizer so that we are able to reconnect and provide our programs in a safe way.
We are so excited to announce our newest partnership project, the Indigenous Arts Partnership Project! This will be a community wide youth programming opportunity to learn more about the art and history of our First Nations friends and neighbours. This project is made possible through the Macro Properties Prairie Partnership.
Sessions may include the opportunity to learn:
- Hand Drums
- Dream Catchers
- Ribbon Skirts
- Cree Flute
- Hoop Dancing
Thank you to the generous support of the Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program! Because of this program we have been able to offer youth in our programs opportunities like:
- NationsWEST Field House Passes
- Co-op Aquatic Centre Passes
- Golfing outings at the North Battleford Golf and Country Club
- Bowling outings at Gutters Bowling and Game Centre
- Events for all participants and their families at NationsWEST Field House
- Outings at Table Mountain
