U of M Indigenous leadership group seeks donations for the city’s homeless – UM Today

March 9, 2017 —

The University of Manitoba’s Indigenous leadership group, known as the Indigenous Circle of Empowerment (I.C.E), is raising funds and collecting donations for their 2nd Annual Bannock and Backpacks Donation Drive.

I.C.E. is once again partnering with Got Bannock?, a grassroots organization that prepares and distributes meals to Winnipeggers in need.

Backpacks filled with donated items will be given out at the Got Bannock? Day of Action on March 19, 2017. Last year’s project resulted in the distribution of over fifty backpacks.

As of October 2015, there were at least 1,700 people experiencing homelessness in Winnipeg and over 75 per cent identified as Indigenous.
