Share Article

In December 2018, Apple Self Storage donated boxes to the Pikangikum Winter Clothing Drive to assist with the transportation of winter clothing to students at the Eenchokay Birchstick School from Kindergarten through High School.

In December of last year, Apple Self Storage was overjoyed to have the opportunity to donate boxes to the Pikangikum Winter Clothing Drive to assist with the transportation of winter clothing.

The goal of the drive was to provide students at the Eenchokay Birchstick School (EBS) in Pikangikum, a remote northern Ontario First Nations community, with winter clothing items so they could be taken out on the land by Elders for fishing and trapping.

Many of the students from Kindergarten through High School that attend the school were identified as not having standard outdoor wear such as winter jackets, snow pants, boots or ski mitts. A generous outpouring of financial support and donations allowed for the purchase and provision of these items for children, youth and adults.

In order to pack the clothing for transport, Apple Self Storage Aurora provided boxes to Dave Gordon, a team member of the All Saints King City team, so the items could be packed as they were received.

These boxes have now been transported and have arrived to the students at EBS Pikangikum thanks to all the efforts of those involved in the drive.

Apple Self Storage is honoured to have been able to take part in such an amazing outreach.
