Coffee for Coats Campaign

The Sweet North Bakery and the Mikinakoos Children’s Fund are partnering to help turn coffee into coats! The Mikinakoos Children’s Fund’s vision is to improve the quality of life for First Nations Children in remote northwestern Ontario while meeting their immediate physical needs for food, clothing, and basic amenities. One of the main programs they fund is for warm winter clothing.

Together, The Sweet North Bakery and Mikinakoos have a goal to raise $25,000 to help provide the Keewaytinook Internet High School (KIHS) students with warm winter gear. KIHS is a program that allows students to remain in their home community while taking a rich variety of ministry inspected courses toward their high school diploma.

Many of the programs that KIHS supports are land-based activities and with close to 350 students in the program, they want to ensure that all students have the chance to take part in the programs.

KIHS supports students living in the following First Nations communities: Bearskin Lake Deer Lake Fort Severn Fort William Keewaywin KI Mattagami Mishkegogamang Nibinamik North Spirit Lake Poplar Hill Sachigo Slate Falls Weagamow Webequie.
