GTN and Tahayghen are shifting their food programs to address the current situation in Old Massett and Masset. There are many organizations providing food, and we want to make sure we are not overlapping to ensure everyone is served fairly and is able to feed their family.
Our current plan is to provide families that are in serious need with a mix of ready-to-eat, frozen meals, fresh produce, and non-perishable items. We would like to start with a few ready-to-eat meals and then grow to have a mix of items picked up at GTN once a week.
This plan could change, and we are open to feedback on how best to serve our families.
Please share. ... See MoreSee Less

If you are planning to scan any work to your teachers or teachers if you are scanning work to your students you can use the ‘Notes App’. Open a new note, press the camera button, the option to scan document will pop up. Once the document is scanned, you can email it with less band with than a photo. ... See MoreSee Less
