Join us for a three day winter clothing drive!
Castlegar student ambassadors and SOAR students are collaborating to put on a Share the Warmth Clothing Drive!
- November 7–9, 2022
- 11 am–1 pm
- Student Ambassador Hub, Castlegar Campus
“My concept of this event is based on what you can give to others from the bottom of your heart! This idea was harbored in my heart when I heard a student talking with the librarian who said, 'I do not have money to pay for books or for a laptop.' I asked myself, 'How will she manage winter?' Winter clothes are expensive. I know the gym rents winter boots, but the jackets and sweaters are the ones that we need most. I want this to be something that people want to do: give with kindness. And I want for those in need to be an opportunity to be grateful and to not feel alone in struggles.”
—Maria Sofia Briceno Aleman, First Year Student Ambassador
