BSW Christmas Drive for One Roof and Argus Youth SheltersExport this event to calendar

Friday, December 4, 2015 — 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM EST

The Bachelor of Social Work Graduating Class of 2015-16 need your assistance! To assist many deserving people throughout this holiday season, on December 4th, we are creating an item drive that will aim to satisfy the Christmas wish lists of OneROOF Youth Services in Kitchener and Argus Residence for Young People in Cambridge. We will be collecting donations now to up until our wrap-up event on December 4th 2015 from 12:30pm-2:30pm.  Essential items each shelter is in need of can be secured through the attached list below. 

We wish for your cooperation in distributing information about this through fellow staff contacts and to whomever you feel may wish to participate in serving this rewarding cause. We will be distributing bins throughout Renison to collect donations until the time of our event on the 4th of December. We will also have a physical presence at the main entrance of the Renison  as well as within the SLC at the time of our event. We will provide FREE HOT DRINKS to all whom are able to donate!

This time of year, many individuals cope with a lack of social, financial, and family supports. Let’s be their shining light to see through the dark during this holiday season!
