Northern Fort Simpson Donates to Flood Relief Efforts in Nahanni Butte
Residents in Nahanni Butte, N.W.T got a big boost from Northern Fort Simpson to help them rebuild after the Liard River flooded the community nearly three weeks ago. The devastating flood ravaged the community of about 150 people, evacuating around 100 people from their flood damaged homes to the nearby Fort Simpson rec centre.
Northern Fort Simpson recognized that a lot of their loyal customers from Nahanni Butte were affected by this massive tragedy. With the community members left with almost nothing except for the love and comfort of their family members, Northern Fort Simpson saw the need to jump into action.
As a result, the store is pleased to announce a $10,000 flood relief donation to the Nahanni Butte Dene Band. The donation will go toward helping community members purchase clothing, food supplies and basic necessities.
