Northern Vision Development is donating $10,000 to the Food Bank Society of Whitehorse.
Inspired by the community minded efforts of Victoria Gold's $100,000 donation last week to the food bank, Northern Vision Development wanted to contribute to the community spirit by adding an additional $10,000.
Rich Thompson, Northern Vision Development CEO said in a statement, "At a time when corporate contributions are needed the most and hard to come by, Victoria Gold is extending such community commitment. We are lucky to have a company with this attitude operating here in the Yukon and we acknowledge the private sector leadership they have demonstrated throughout the COVID crisis. NVD is delighted to add some additional contribution to this very generous gift."
Northern Vision Development is a leading Yukon real estate developer and hotel operator based in Whitehorse with additional properties in Mayo and Dawson City. NVD is proud to be over 34% First Nations owned and more than 60% Yukon owned.
Whitehorse Food Bank Executive Director, Dave Blottner added, "We are so incredibly thankful for this donation; acts like this showcase how lucky we are to live in the north where community stewardship and compassion are still at the forefront of our community."
The Food Bank Society of Whitehorse is a community minded organization created to provide emergency food to the hungry, while supporting a greater effort to help alleviate poverty. Since opening its doors in May 2009, the Whitehorse Food Bank has helped over 7,000 Yukoners, 30 per cent of which are children.
