NAC is a proud sponsor of the Indigenous People’s Day Fest, a celebration of, “origins and indigeneity as this nation's First Peoples’.”
In addition to sponsoring, NAC also set up an information table with flyers and pamphlets showing all of the programs and services NAC offers. There was a steady stream throughout the day of people stopping by to learn, get questions answered, and pick up information. There were also heartwarming interactions from people who just wanted to say hello and tell us that they were graduates of “Patina,” and how it, “changed my life.” People also came to tell us that they had been an intern at NAC, or that they had worked for NAC and all were grateful for the experience.
On that day, NAC gave out information to people looking for services, but also received warm feedback from an appreciative community. We appreciate everyone who stopped by and enjoyed the day's activities!
