Thompson Island Cultural Camp, in collaboration with the MCA Wholistic Health & Wellness Program and Akwesasne Child & Family Services, has put together care packages to be given away to elders in the community! Packages will include: locally-harvested (loose) teas, white corn flour, homemade blueberry jam, homemade chest rub, heatable rice bags & more.


There are 75 care packages available for elders age 65+ — to register, please contact Kyle Thompson at kyle.thompson@akwesasne.ca or at 613-575-2341 ext. 3107.

Pick-up for the care packages will be held on September 28, 2021 from 1PM – 5PM at the Tsi Snaihne Recreation Centre.


Everything in the care packages has been handcrafted by our Thompson Island team, right from hand-picking the tea leaves to washing and grinding the white corn flour. Please be respectful of the time and energy that went into creating the packages — we would like all items to be utilized properly and not go to waste.
