Point #1: While Yukon Energy's primary job is to keep the lights on, we also feel a responsibility to help Yukon communities be as strong and healthy as possible. That's why, each year, we give some of our profits to local organizations.
Point #2: We are sincere in our wish to maintain a two-way conversation with you about Yukon’s energy future. One way of keeping the conversation going is through our Facebook page.
With these two things in mind, we are trying something a bit different this Christmas. Between now and New Year's Eve, for every person who 'Likes' us on Facebook, we will donate $1.00 to the Mae Bachur Animal Shelter in Whitehorse, up to a maximum of $5,000.
The shelter's needs are great right now. They are overflowing to the point where during the last week of October and the month of November, they had to ship 33 puppies and adult dogs to the Victoria SPCA. Sponsorship dollars would allow them to add kennels to the shelter so they can keep Yukon animals in Yukon.
They also want to offer spaying and neutering clinics in the communities, and expand their services to establish a facility outside of Whitehorse city limits where they can accept abandoned and/or neglected livestock.
So please take a few moments to "Like" our Facebook page. You'll be sending a little Christmas cheer to the animals and you'll ensure that you can play a part in planning a clean energy future for our territory.
