TIAC Members: Making a difference
Thank you to the many TIAC Members who are helping during this difficult time. From those offering support like temporary housing for essential service providers, to others who brought home stranded Canadians from around the world. You are making a difference.
Today, we are featuring Sundog Retreat in Whitehorse, Yukon. Sundog Retreat has pivoted their business towards promoting “Staycations” for local community members. Staycations at their retreat are supporting their new greenhouse initiative, which– in collaboration with the Yukon Grain Farm, the Whitehorse Food Bank, Y2C2 youth, the Yukon College PIVOT program and some dedicated volunteers -will produce food for the White Horse Food Bank. They also hope to hire people for the summer to assist in greenhouse operations.
