The holiday shopping season has begun, and Concordia’s Libraries are once again offering a great way to buy gifts for loved ones while helping those in need.

On Monday, December 14, from 12 to 2 p.m. in the J.A. DeSève Cinema (Room LB-125), you’ll have the chance to bid on crafts, antiques, jewellery, objets d'art and holiday-themed items at the 26th edition of the Libraries Christmas Auction.

All proceeds go directly to a number of vibrant local charities.

“The auction is a fun event that brings the Concordia community together for a great cause,” said Faye Corbin, chair of the organizing committee.

“The fact that we can help others in our community by attending an auction and spending as little as two dollars is something special. Our volunteers and sponsors are wonderful people who care.”

Event proceeds will help support various community organizations including: Auberge Madeleine, Can Serve Foundation, Chez Doris, CODE (Canadian Organization for Development through Education), Dans la Rue, the Montreal Gazette Christmas Fund, Operation Eyesight Universal, Oxfam, Sun Youth and the Women's Centre of Montréal.

Here at Concordia, the sales contribute to the Centre for the Arts in Human Development (CAHD), the Multi-faith Chaplaincy's Student Emergency and Food Fund, and Financial Aid and Awards.

 

The Libraries Christmas Auction is on Monday, December 14, from 12 to 2 p.m. in the J.A. DeSève Cinema (Room LB-125).
