The 16th Annual Holiday Harvest came to an end on Friday, December 11, 2016.
We had a record breaking year with the donations, thanks to the time and commitment from all students and staff members. (Clap! Clap! Clap!) Your influence and support makes a tremendous difference. As students, you’ve gained more than just a chance of winning a free breakfast. You just helped to build a sense of responsibility to help your community, and you worked together for a collective cause. You should be proud of your amazing accomplishment!
As mentioned previously, the academic classes who bring in the most donated goods are awarded with a delicious breakfast, along with the chair and dean.
This year, the winning classes are:
First Year – C4
Second Year – Municipal
Third Year – ***CMD***
Fourth Year – CMD
***CMD Third Year Students earned a breakfast because of their ingenious strategy. They managed to collect over $1200.00 in donations.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU goes out to:
• All of the students who so generously donated hamper items
• Robin for calling the Salvation Army for the Holiday Harvest families,
• Louise for collecting and tabulating the donations,
• Cody, Dylan, Denis, Margaret, Val, Louise, Patricia and NIcky for organizing the food hamper donations,
• Louise and Patricia for purchasing last minute perishables and missing gifts,
• Margaret and Carrol for letting us use their office space to store gifts and food items during the first half of December,
• Denis and Dylan for delivering the baskets to the families on Wednesday, December 16, 2015. The hampers were well received, and the families showed great appreciation.
Denis and Dylan were also sent off with warm hugs and best wishes, and the families asked them to pass on their gratitude to everyone involved in this act of kindness.
THANK YOU ALL FOR ANOTHER GENEROUS YEAR OF DONATING TO THOSE THAT ARE LESS FORTUNATE.
Here’s wishing each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!
