2020 has been a difficult year for many in our province and we were saddened to hear of the struggles in Fond Du Lac with COVID-19 and their water treatment facility. PINTER has worked with the community in the past and wanted to help the Nation by providing much needed supplies and necessities. We hope this small act will help the community during this difficult period and that everyone remains safe and healthy. Supplies are being flown north today and we thank our staff for acting quickly and taking the time to help. #engineering #PINTER
