HAMPERS FOR THE HOLIDAYS – The Yukon First Nations Education Directorate, through Jordan’s Principle Nutrition Program, is distributing Winter Break Hampers to all Whitehorse-based Indigenous families with children up to the age of 18 in Shipyards Park until Dec.12. Here, volunteer Ofelia Javar is seen last Saturday in the tent set up for the goods that cannot be frozen. There are 800 hampers for distribution locally and 800 for the communities, and families must pre-register. The hampers are worth $450.
