Urban Students Receive Backpacks and School Supplies

Urban Students Receive Backpacks and School Supplies

The Urban Office on Park St. was filled with laughter and excitement as young Piapot urban students received their Piapot logoed backpacks filled to the brim with school supplies, courtesy of the band.

It took nearly a week to get over 300 backpacks and school supplies assembled and distributed. “It was a lot of work but I’m glad we did it,” says Kristin Francis, External Relations Coordinator and lead organizer of the initiative.

The idea came from Chief and Council, who thought it was something that needed to be done. “Children have to be equipped with what they need in order to have a better learning experience,” explains Chief Jeremy Fourhorns.

Thanks to the many volunteers who came to sort supplies and stuff backpacks – your help was invaluable!

Jays Care Rookie League

Jay’s Care Rookie League

We had a great season this year with our Piapot team. Thank you to Matthew Lavallee for coaching this amazing group of kids. After a long battle, our team came in 2nd place overall in the tournament.

We had a 350-fan turnout for the last game of the season, where our team and fans enjoyed a BBQ and prizes sponsored by Chief and Council.

We look forward to coming in 1st place next year with all our fans coming out to all games! Congratulations to Peepeekisis for taking the win in their last game. We hope you enjoy the Toronto trip!
