West Region Treaty 2 and 4 Health Services Jordan’s Principle program made things festive in Dauphin Sunday, as it hosted its first ever Christmas celebration for off reserve Jordan’s Principle families at the Parkland Recreation Complex.
The Aspen Lodge and Curler’s Lounge were filled to the brim with children and their families enjoying a turkey dinner and visits and pictures with Santa Claus.
The afternoon was filled with free movie passes, gifts for the children, some superb door prizes and a whole lot of Christmas spirit.
Jordan’s Principle makes sure all First Nations children living in Canada can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them. Funding can help with a wide range of health, social and educational needs, including the unique needs that First Nations Two-Spirit and LGBTQQIA children and youth and those with disabilities may have.
Jordan’s Principle is named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. He was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba.
