Chi-Miigwetch to all off reserve members who have been patiently waiting the holiday feast support distribution… as GBFN staff had to make a quick pivot from verifying status members, identifying duplicate submissions and calculating/submitting per household cheque requisition to attending vaccination mobilization workshops, participating in operational distribution planning and administrating the multitude of bureaucratic needs associated with ensuring that GBFN members (both on AND off reserve) receive priority timeline to vaccination allocation (in GBFN at the health centre AND in Thunder Bay). With the arrival of the freezer making GBFN a ‘hub’ and the last vaccine teleconference seminar to provide information/receive instruction, GBFN staff and resources can finally verify the holiday support cheque audit tomorrow morning … and which see funds send out soon thereafter.
Chi-Miigwetch for your understanding on the switch of priority activities … and here’s to a new year which starts with a glimmer of the light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel.
