Today, Vale is pleased to announce a $100,000 gift to the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre in Thompson, Manitoba.  This support will enable the Friendship Centre to provide enhanced programming to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal members of the community.

The Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre recently finished building a brand new, 20,422 square foot facility to house its various service and programs under one roof.  Life skills, recreation and employment, as well as education and training are specific areas of focus for the Centre.  Vale’s contribution will help to outfit the new space with modern recreational and technical equipment allowing the Centre to continue delivering relevant and effective programs and services.

“Vale is proud to support the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre,” explains Ryan Land, Manager of Corporate Affairs, Manitoba Operations.  “The Centre plays an important role in our community, and its good work over the last 35 years has helped many of our employees, their family members, and their friends.  We are confident that this contribution will help them continue to positively influence the lives of Thompson residents and we look forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre.”

The Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre celebrated the grand opening of its newest facility today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, celebration and dinner.
