Homeowners in Inuvik got a nice surprise on Feb. 25, after Arctic Petroleum Services Ltd. distributed care packages of Kraft Dinner, Soda Crackers , Granola bars and a card to every household in town.

In total, 1,700 packages were distributed door-to-door through Inuvik and Aklavik. People living in apartments weren’t left out, but had to pick up their package at headquarters.

“The reception was absolutely beautiful. The kindness shown by community members will never be forgotten,” said general manager Susan Eveleigh. “A huge thank you to the communities of Inuvik and Aklavik for their kind reception, positive attitudes and as always, their support! 

“Nearly every dollar made at APS is reinvested into our company, our awesome staff and the communities.”

Noting APS has ‘exciting’ news for Aklavik coming soon, Eveleigh said the company supports festivals and events in Inuvik and Aklavik whenever it is able to. She added the idea to distribute care packages came from the company’s ownership.

The packages included Kraft Dinner, Soda Crackers, Granola bars and a card, and anyone living in an apartment can pick a package up at APS’ office.
