The Healing of the Seven Generations, is a Kitchener agency that distributes backpacks to about 300 indiginous students each year.  As a gesture of encouragement for that journey back to school, the student receives a pair of running shoes and a backpack stuffed with school supplies.

"It has nothing to do with finances," said Donna Dubie, executive director, "It has to do with us honouring that they're going to school." A good education is key to living a fulfilling, rich life. But school is also a toxic subject for many Indigenous people.

Rotary Sunrise is supporting this cause with a $500 donation for the backpack program.

During the past year, Dr Nykamp says the number of drug overdose-related deaths in Cambridge has doubled.

 
Police, crime prevention and health officials are teaming up to educate the public about the dangers of fentanyl and how to access and administer the live-saving antidote, giving more time for help to arrive.  Unfortunately, that message sometimes comes too late.
 

Dr Nykamp has already been speaking with city and region officials, and well as staff at different health and social service agencies, about the fentanyl crisis and the impacts it’s having on the community.

“What we need is a grass-roots organization to start dealing with this,” he said. “We can reverse this by working together.”
