Save the Evidence May Newsletter Released by Woodland Cultural Centre with Important Updates on the Project

The Save the Evidence campaign is an initiative launched by the Woodland Cultural Centre to raise awareness and support for the restoration of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School building. The vision is to turn the building into an Interpretive Historic Site and Educational Resource. The Mohawk Institute building itself is only one of a handful of Residential School buildings left standing in Canada, and the only one in Ontario that offered guided tours until its closure for repairs.

In this Issue:

  • The Last Phase: Executive Director Janis Monture, gives an update on the progress of the Save the Evidence campaign. She shares the plans for interpretation of the Mohawk Institute Residential School and reopening timelines.
  • Great Canadian Giving Challenge: As we approach the final phase of the campaign, this June we ask the community to come together again and help us cross this finish line together. Read how every $1 donated could potentially help us win the $20,000 grand prize on July 1st.
  • Monthly Donor Stories: Monthly donors make a big difference and this issue we asked some of our Monthly Donors to share their personal stories. These community members have made a commitment to stand with us to Save the Evidence and we celebrate them!
  • Donor Quotes, Orange Hoodies, and so much more!
