Gift for Good - A charity vendor event benefiting the Student Association Food Pantry

About this Event

On November 26th from 11:30am-2:30pm in the SLC event space C: The Third year St. Lawrence college AMC students are hosting a charity vender show benefiting the SLC student association food pantry.

The campus pantry program is available to students in need and completely funded by the students of SLC. Over the years the Food pantry usage has increased dramatically - 70% since 2016 to the end of 2018 and has already increased by 103 % to date. Food Pantries are becoming nearly as common as bookstores across Canadian Colleges, and is a necessity with rising tuition, increasing textbook costs, inadequate student loans and the high cost of food. Even a province such as Ontario that already offers one of the best student assistance programs in Canada including numerous bursaries, grants and student loans it is not enough and the campus Food Pantry is a valuable service offered by the SA designed to assist students in need.

Join us and help support the 3rd year SLC students in their efforts to share information & awareness to support local charities of Kingston. The students have approached many charities in the Kingston area in hopes to bring awareness to their causes & events and hopefully inspire future volunteers and donors.

Please RSVP and Bring a non-perishable food item to benefit the food pantry, come support the 3rd year students awareness efforts and have a chance to win your holiday gifts from our many sponsors. For each none perishable food item donated, you will recieve a ballot - The more the merrier! (and the more chance to WIN a giftable prize.... just in time for the holidays).
