Odette students make big impact on local community

Whether through a canned food drive for the Downtown Mission, a fashion show for Hiatus House, or a dinner for the Well-Come Centre for Human Potential, students in the Odette School of Business’s course in Management and Organizational Life made a substantial contribution to the community, says professor Martha Reavley.

The students form teams to design and execute projects that provide the framework for the application of a broad range of business skills. This year, they raised $35,000 and donated food, clothing and other goods to benefit 26 local charities.
