Many exciting projects under way in the Tribe these days! Renovations at the Daigleville School is being conducted in stages. The first step was stopping the leaking from the roof which was accomplished thanks to the generous donations and fundraising efforts taking place in 2015 for this cause. Our next phase is to conduct the general repair to allow utilities to be reconnected such as water and electricity. This phase will include replacing broken windows, repairing ceiling and flooring caused by years of leaking from the roof, and updating and repairing plumbing and electrical.
Today the UHN is launching the second phase of fundraising to get the Daigleville property operational for tribal and community use. We are partnering with our friends at 32auctions to conduct an online fundraising drive through August 15th. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this second phase of repair. In addition, through generous donations from the community we are also holding live auctions to generate the funds needed to reach our goal. The link to visit the site is below.
