PhD student teaches by giving through cereal drive

Doctoral student Kimberly Hillier believes in making a difference and did her part by inviting her colleagues to contribute to a cereal drive for the Downtown Mission.

Hillier, an education student and a teacher with Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board, collected cereal donations in the Neal Education Building on Thursday after reading about the mission’s food shortage.

According to the Ontario Association of Food Banks, in one of four households using food banks, children skip breakfast at least once a week, says Kimberly Hillier, a doctoral student in the Faculty of Education.

She is calling on the campus community to help meet a dire need for breakfast cereals in the monthly food baskets distributed by the Downtown Mission. She will collect new, unopened boxes of cereal in the lobby of the Neal Education Building, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, September 27.

Student newspaper soliciting ideas for special issue

Do you have ideas about the city of Windsor? How it looks? How it runs?

The Lance student newspaper is inviting Windsor university and community members to submit letters to the city for publication in its premiere Ideas Issue, April 18.

“It’s all about ideas for changing Windsor,” says editor-in-chief Natasha Marar. “Urban planning, community involvement, social issues, the environment, the economy, arts and culture and many more are all going to be covered. The goal is to talk about Windsor’s future. No idea is too outlandish or too small.”
