Charity Projects
CBC Turkey Driver for Christmas Hampers
On 17 December 2011, President Tony Chubbs and Vice President Hollis Yetman donated 3 Turkeys to CBC's roadside Turkey Drive. Each year the CBC partners with Tim Hortons and the Labrador Friendship Center to receieve roadside donations of frozen Turkeys and cash donations from businesses, charity groups and the general public to be used in the preparation of Christmas Hampers for the needy.
Christmas Bird Count Sponsor
The LHAFA stepped up to sponsor the 112th Audobon Christmas Bird Count for the Happy Valley-Goose Bay count circle. As a conservation organization, the LHAFA is proud to assist with the collecting of scientific data on resident birds in Labrador. This information aids research scientists in monitoring trends in bird populations and to identify species that may be at risk.
Cold Plate Fundraiser
In October 2011 LHAFA Executive Members Hollis and Dwayne Yetman volunteered to raise money by selling 500 cold plates to assist Uncle Stu Burt from Charlettown Labrador in his fight against Cancer. The LHAFA donated $101 to buy turkeys for the cold plates which helped raise $3000.
Ben Barney Cancer Fundraiser
In July 2011, Director Joe Cabot organized a fund raiser during a benefit concert to assist Ben Barney and his family with the costs of his cancer treatment. Elvis Linstead of the Torngat Fish Producers Cooperative provided a discounted price on 20 pounds of Fresh Lobsters and 30 pounds of Frozen Cod to be raffled off on 50:50 tickets. The LHAFA contributed $90.00 in the purchase of this quality seafood. Joe raised over $350.00 through ticket sales. All $350.00 was given to the Barney Family. Great job Joe! We wish Ben and his family all the best in their fight against cancer.
2011 Chariety Moose Licences
The LHAFA have been successful in obtaining an either sex Moose Licence for it's membership for the 2011 hunting season. The licences are for Hunting Area 53, Muskrat Falls, and the season opens 10 September 2011 and closes 11 March 2012. Meat from this moose will be used to make Moose Burgers to be sold during LHAFA fundraising events. Good Luck!

The LHAFA membership will also be harvesting a Moose for the Labrador Friendship Center, Nunatsiavut Government County Food Freezer and the Anglican Church for their food bank, hampers, soup kitchens and fundraisers.
