Downie-Wenjack Foundation Donations

Donations to Downie-Wenjack Foundation
Posted on 10/07/2021
Our staff, students and families will be able to make a donation to the Downie- Wenjack  Foundation through School Day from September 30- October 30th, 2021.

The goal for this donation is $2,000.00 as a school community. The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund is part of Gord Downie’s legacy and embodies his commitment, and that of his family, to improving the lives of First Peoples in Canada. In collaboration with the Wenjack Family, the goal of the Fund is to continue the conversation that began with Chanie Wenjack’s residential school story, and to aid our collective reconciliation journey through a combination of awareness, education, and action.

This is part of our SJO Truth and Reconciliation efforts as we work toward addressing the 94 Calls to Action.
