Latest News for Lakehead Express
The Health and Wellness Expo was originally designed and produced in Winnipeg in 1994. The goal of the shows was to create a venue where companies, groups and individuals who are in the business of promoting health and wellness products and services could have a targeted and specialized location to share information. Consumers would also have the opportunity to visit this venue as a safe haven for collecting information, products and services that offer choices for the enhancement or improvement of their well-being. The Health & Wellness Expo was developed over the years to become the Great Canadian Wellness Tour with shows planned for multiple cities in Western Canada, bringing the answers to health and wellness issues to as many people as possible.
The show in Thunder Bay happens this weekend Friday through Sunday at the Coliseum Building. A link to free tickets (usually $10) is provided, just press the wellness Expo logo above. See you there!

Clothing Assistance Undercover Project a Huge Succes
Lakehead Express Soccer Club is once again supporting the Clothing Assistance Mission’s Undercover Project this Christmas with a donation of new socks and underwear! The Club’s goal this year was to collect 1500 pieces for the project and we are happy to report that the LEX Rep Teams have surpassed that goal and collected 1873 pairs of socks and underwear!
Every December, Lakehead Express Soccer Club selects a local charity to support in the community. In the past, Rep Teams were asked to collect food to be donated to the Thunder Bay Regional Food Distribution Association and to date over 2000 pounds of food has been collected to support local food banks!
The Clothing Assistance Mission provides an invaluable service to citizens in Thunder Bay, making sure that no matter the income, everyone has clothing that is affordable. The clientele that the Clothing Assistance Mission serves ranges from the homeless to those who are struggling. Many people are referred to the CAM thanks to a network of 60 partnerships that the Mission has in Thunder Bay, as well as referrals from the community. With Christmas fast approaching, one of the Clothing Assistance Mission’s projects is the Undercover Program. In the Christmas Cheer hampers that families receive, there are coupons included that can be redeemed at the CAM for a supply of brand new socks and underwear for the children in the family. These are the simple comforts that add quality and hope to life. All through the year on every Wednesday, the CAM offers a ten dollar per 22L bag sale to help those on low incomes.
The Mission is funded by the United Way, and all financial donations over ten dollars will receive a tax receipt. If more information is required, please phone them at 474-3583 or visit their website, clothingassistance.com
