Another Bright Christmas for Students Thanks to our Generous College Community
Once again this year, members of La Cité personnel demonstrated their generosity and participated in various fundraising activities aimed at creating Christmas hampers for students in need. The Student Association and La Cité Foundation worked together to prepare and donate these hampers filled with food items and grocery gift cards. In total, 120 students benefited from these baskets and were able to make their families’ holiday season a bit brighter.
Numerous departments actively participated by putting together fundraising activities such as a gift-basket raffle. Unique gift baskets were raffled off to employees and proceeds from the ticket sales went toward purchasing food items.
In addition to this annual tradition, a large number of La Cité staff members and students participated in a food drive to help fill the shelves of the food bank and increase the support offered to students. This mobilization effort resulted in $6 786 raised in 2015. Thank you for your outstanding generosity!
