Mining company helps fill hampers in Nunavut community

Volunteers and municipal staff in Rankin Inlet helped prepare 30 of these hampers, filled with food and cleaning supplies, to go out to families in the community of about 3,000, with another 30 hampers on their way shortly. The effort was made possible by a $25,000 donation from Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. to help residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Many Rankin Inlet residents have lost incomes while businesses have been shut down or reduced their efforts during this health crisis,” said an April 2 release from the Municipality of Rankin Inlet.
