Stringing lights, shoveling snow, picking up parcels, checking mail and delivering groceries for local residents, offices, schools and businesses filled the schedule this past week for members of the Inclusion NWT service teams.

The Odd Job Squad shoveled snow free for 47 seniors around Yellowknife, to ensure their pathways would be as clear as a cloudless silent night for the start of the holidays.

The Business Services team was abuzz picking up parcels and dropping off cards for last-minute gift-givers.

Skills Training clients worked away at decorating their workplace while thanking all our friends with cards they handcrafted.

Supported Living clients shopped for gifts to share with their loved ones, alongside Inclusion NWT staff.

And finally, today, it’s time for all clients to relax and enjoy the merriment and joy of this festive season, alongside family, friends and Inclusion NWT Supported Living staff who work 24-7-365.
