We Love Our Students Holiday Hamper

We Love Our Students

 

Student Life’s annual We Love Our Students Hampers program is underway. This program supports current Mohawk College students while maintaining a confidential nomination process, using language that eliminates superiority while being transparent about who is gifting the hampers. The program is all about kindness!!

Your donations make it possible to give our students essential and thoughtful items to support some of their needs during the winter break and beyond.

Last year 87 students were supported by the hamper campaign. This year we are happy to continue our filled hamper donations and we invite you to build and fill a We Love Our Students Hamper with your colleagues.

How you can help:

1.       Pick up a hamper from Student Life (R203, Fennell) beginning Wed. Nov. 8th

a.       Fill your hamper with non perishable, essential and thoughtful items. Keep in mind that we have a diverse student population and not everyone celebrates Christmas. Suggestion lists will be provided in each hamper for your reference.

** Tip: try picking a theme for your hamper. For example a “Cozy hamper”, a “Parents of little kids hamper”, “Self-Care hamper”, etc. Grocery gift cards are strongly encouraged.

b.      Return your filled hamper, unwrapped or in clear wrap, by Fri. Dec. 1

2.       Make a donation to support students through the Mohawk College Foundation website. Please select “Campus Food Supports” to contribute to.

3.       Donate a non-perishable and/or personal care item(s) to be added to a hamper or the Access Pantry. Drop off items to the Student Life office, room R203, Fennell Campus.

PLEASE NOTE: Student recipients are notified Dec 11 - 15.  If you would like to nominate a student, please email andrea.brienesse@mohawkcollege.ca

Thank you for your support J
