UPDATE: The needs in northern Saskatchewan are urgent and we are hoping to respond as soon as possible. Please drop-off completed masks by May 15th. Masks dropped off before or after May 15th will also be graciously accepted.
As the realities of COVID-19 continue to impact the lives of people throughout the province and around the world, MCC Saskatchewan continues to look for ways to support the communities that we live and work in.
The Office of the Treaty Commissioner (OTC) has appealed to individuals who sew, asking them to sew masks that will be distributed to Indigenous communities. As the situation continues to become more urgent in northern Saskatchewan (especially with the latest outbreak in La Loche), we are appealing to our constituency to help respond to this need.
If you are willing and able to participate, we invite you to join us by making cloth masks in your home. Masks are relatively easy to make and require few supplies. Patterns and instructions are linked below.
Although we have temporarily suspended material resource donations, we are making an exception to the current policy for this particular situation only. Once masks have been received, they will be sanitized and delivered to the OTC for distribution.
Drop-offs can be made Monday to Friday (8:30am -12pm) at the MCC office located at 600 45th Street West. A contactless drop-off bin will be placed inside the doors. If you do not live in Saskatoon or are unable to drop them off, please contact the MCC office at 306.665.2555 to discuss alternative options.
