AO’s Reconciliation Garden

Looking for 100 weekly volunteers to help move the needle on reconciliation

“Food was weaponized against the Indigenous peoples for hundreds of years… Our goal is to give people an easy way to be a part of the reconciliation. It’s all about building relationships and partnerships. Reconciliation isn’t something Indigenous peoples need to do, it’s something others need to act on. We want to help provide that opportunity.”

Stephen Jackson, CEO Anishnabeg Outreach

Anishnabeg Outreach (AO) is looking for volunteers to donate their time to assist with our Reconciliation Garden in Breslau, ON.

The produce harvested from this garden in the Fall will be provided to First Nations, Inuit and Métis community members through AO’s Spirit Bundle Offering Program.

For more information or to volunteer, please email shannon@aocan.org

Donations

Anishnabeg Outreach offers many different programs which will allow you to contribute to our donations. Through the incredible donation of a house, and the funds from the sale of the house, we were able to take our organization in a new direction and begin the building of our centre for healing. Your donations make a difference. For example, a local church collected funds and chose to donate to AO. We were able to double the value of the donation by purchasing a washer and dryer at a Black Friday sale. Now families can donate their children’s outgrown clothing that we can wash, fold, sort and distribute to other families in the community. Oftentimes families are confronted with choosing food over clothing and the washer and dryer meant that children could have both food and clothing.

Anishnabeg Outreach is a registered charity and will issue tax receipts in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) guidelines.

A great way to increase your knowledge and understanding of the experiences of First Nations, Inuit and Métis folks is by picking up a book written by an Indigenous author.

AO’s Tutoring team has pulled together a few wonderfully written books, that we think would make a great fit into your reading rotation.

Support Indigenous artists and authors, not only on Sept 30th, but every day 🧡📚
