Organizers of a service-learning opportunity that engages students from a range of academic disciplines are seeking donations for a charity auction to offset the costs of their travel during Reading Week to experiences near and far.
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) will mount a silent auction in the CAW Student Centre Commons on November 28 and 29.
A similar event last year garnered many donations-in-kind from faculty and staff, reports co-ordinator Simon du Toit: “and these proved to be among our most popular items.”
He invites anyone with cultural artifacts, artworks, framed photographs, or other interesting items to donate, to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The support of our faculty and staff is so important to the success of the program,” Dr. du Toit says. “The ASB has already had a great impact on students’ lives; your support will help us continue that work.”
