Honour your elders

The Nak’azdli Elders Society was over $2,000 richer thanks to Sana’aih Markets Community Rewards Program.

The Nak’azdli Elders Society was over $2,000 richer thanks to Sana’aih Markets Community Rewards Program.

Sana’aih Market once again chose a local charity to receive the funds from the program, and here Rob Garden (left) is handing over a cheque to Margot Sagalon of the society. Sagalon said the Nak’azdli Elders Society will likely use the funds for improvements needed at the First Nations Cemetery.

Stores which are members of the Associated Grocers participate in the program and an amount from each item purchased from the Community Rewards flyer over a six week period is then donated to the charity.

Sana’aih also held two hot dog sales which the elders helped with to raise the funds.
