More than 170 students and their families will receive a Christmas hamper.
Thanks to the support of La Cité employees, the Foundation, in collaboration with the Student Association, will distribute more than 170 Christmas hampers to La Cité students thereby making their holiday season a little brighter. They were created by the food bank, which is managed by the Student Association, who will ensure that each is distributed before the holiday season.
This initiative was put together by La Cité employees who organize an annual Christmas gift basket sale using unique baskets prepared by different departments throughout the Collège, as well as an annual Christmas lunch. Funds raised will be devoted entirely to the preparation of the food hampers. In addition to this annual tradition, a large number of La Cité employees and students participated in a food drive to fill the shelves of the food bank and, consequently, increase the support offered to students.
We are happy to announce that in December 2014, we raised $4 128 to create Christmas hampers for our students in need.
