2020 Lakers/UNFC Toy Drive

The United Native Friendship Centre and the Fort Frances Lakers held our Annual Toy Drive a little different this year. For the last 10 years the Lakers have been holding the Toy Drive at a December home game but with the COVID-19 pandemic, only 50 fans are allowed in arenas with no special events taking place.  So...we are took it to our parking lot at the Circle of Life Centre on Friday, December 4, 2020. Come out and meet the Lakers while donating to the children in our community this Christmas season!  Our three winners of UNFC and Lakers swag were Wayne Allen, Ethan Hein and Darcy Parsons.  Gichi Miigwetch to everyone that donated this year!

UNFC Message of Positivity and Kindness

We were challenged by the Sault Ste. Marie Friendship Centre to spread a message of kindness and we happily accepted! Our staff came together (seperately) to spread this message of positivity to our community and to all of our sister Friendship Centres across Canada. Please be kind to one another; a simple smile or act of kindness can turn someone's day around for the better. At this time we all need kindness, patience, understanding and positivity to keep our community, country and world a safe place for everyone.  View our message here UNFC Positivity & Kindness
