3) Toy Drive for Montreal Children’s Hospital Child Life Department
HR is also teaming up with John Molson School of Business for its sixth annual Toy Drive for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Child Life Department. Last year’s drive saw more than 1,000 toys sent to children at the hospital. Organizers Eva Ferrara, Mona Senecal and Jay Mazzamauro are looking for donations of unwrapped (non-violent) toys until December 13. Drop-offs can be made at rooms MB-4.204, MB-12.117 or FB-1130. The angels at Distribution Services will deliver the toys to hospital volunteers, who will sort the gifts before they’re wrapped. Cash donations go towards the purchase of toys at cost from Danawares.
2) Terry’s CAUSE on Campus
Le Gym, the Concordia Student Union and the Concordia Outdoors club are coordinating Terry’s CAUSE on Campus, raising money and awareness for cancer research on behalf of the Terry Fox Foundation. (CAUSE stands for College and University Student Engagement.) From December 1 to 8, 2013, they hope to mobilize Concordia students, staff and alumni to run or walk 8,000 kilometres, the distance across Canada, in commemoration of Terry Fox’s cross-national Marathon of Hope, with the objective of raising more than $5,000 to outrun cancer.
