IWS, in partnership with the Metis Community Liaison Department (MCLD), has been putting together elder kits for our Metis Elders. MCLD sends out these care and activity bags with the food hampers that they provide to Metis Elders weekly.
The purpose of the IWS Elder Kits is to provide care for our Elders and supply them with some essentials during this tough time. Many elders cannot go out as safely as they once could before the Pandemic.
These care packages are filled with essential products such as shampoo, conditioner, laundry tabs, face masks, and many leisure activities. To date, IWS has distributed 1000 bags in Manitoba, and mailed 31 to elders across the province and even to British Columbia! Elders continue to call IWS to express their thanks and gratitude.
