(Wind River Reservation, WY) – MI3 Petroleum Engineering delivered around 20,000 pounds of food to both Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone elders on Friday, December 10th.
800 boxes of food were delivered to homes or picked up at locations in Arapahoe, Ethete, and Fort Washakie with the help of local coordinators Brenden Harjo and Alicia Cook.
MI3 is based in Colorado and was selected in June 2021 to operate the Tribal-owned Circle Ridge Field located on the Wind River Reservation.
This is their first year to be involved with the community and saw two needs this year that they could help with – Tribal elders and schools.
It is an honor for us to help, said Mahmood Ahmadi, MI3 Vice President.
While the majority of the food was purchased by the company this year, donations were also collected by a group of Colorado Academy students in Denver. MI3 hopes next year to expand community involvement.
In addition to the food, they provided sponsorship for sports programs at a few area schools.
The Fort Washakie boys’ and girls’ basketball teams all got team jackets, according to Dana Rosales, MI3 office manager. They also provided sponsorship at Lander Valley High School and are working with three other high schools: Wyoming Indian, St. Stephens and Wind River.
