The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s “Second Wave Committee” of chiefs is completing its deliveries of COVID-19 care packages this week. The packages contain helpful resources to assist your household during the pandemic. 

For those residents who have not been home to accept the package, instructions are left to notify the chiefs by calling Mohawk Government at 613-575-2348/613-575-2250 and arrangements will be made for re-delivery. Council has compiled lists of addresses that have received bags as well as which have called in to arrange delivery if they weren’t home to accept the bags.  

The deadline to call for your undelivered bag is this Thursday, Dec. 17 at 12 p.m. noon. Unclaimed bags will then be redistributed. 

Residents of Cornwall are invited to pick up a bag – one per household/address – at the A’nowara’ko:wa Arena on Friday, Dec. 18 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. This will be first come/first serve as there are a limited number of bags.  

The committee would like to thank the community for their positive words and we hope that the bags will bring some benefit to your household.  The holiday cards are provided in lieu of Council’s holidays dinners which were unfortunately cancelled this year due to the pandemic. Council looks forward to offering the dinners again in the future.  

Happy Holidays and stay safe.
