As partners to a proud Indigenous community, we’ve been educated about some of the challenges facing Indigenous peoples in Canada. In seeking ways to honour and support Indigenous youth, one path is through fundraising and we’ve identified three organizations doing excellent work in the Wood Buffalo region and beyond – Spirit North, Indspire and Legacy of Hope Foundation. Paragon will match up to $5,000 of donations, in honour of the victims and survivors of residential schools, and in support of the proud generation of youth now developing. Use the link below to join our fundraiser and donate:
