De Beers Group Strengthens COVID-19 Response in the NWT

Press Release

25 Jun 2020

In response to the needs that have arisen out of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, De Beers Group is proud to announce an additional $28,000 contribution to address food security concerns in the Northwest Territories (NWT).

This week’s donation is being shared between the North Slave Métis Alliance, Det’on Cho Corporation (Yellowknives Dene First Nation), Deninu Kué First Nation, NWT Métis Nation, Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation and the Tlicho Government. In addition, funding will go to provide food and cleaning supplies to the Salvation Army and Bailey House in Yellowknife.

Paul Gruner, President & CEO of Det’on Cho Corporation, said, “We offer a big thank you to the De Beers Group team. This would not have been possible without contributions from donors such as them. It truly is appreciated.”

This brings the total value of contributions provided through De Beers’ COVID-19 response plan to communities and organizations in the NWT since early March to more than $83,000.

Previous donations include $25,000 USD to combat gender based-violence in the NWT, approximately $7,500 worth of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to AVENS Manor long term care facility in Yellowknife, a commitment to provide eight weeks of food and cleaning supplies to the sobering day shelter operated by the NWT Disabilities Council in Yellowknife, along with a number of other donations.

The company applauds the leadership of community organizations who are working tirelessly under difficult conditions to assist those in need.
