Spirit swag an incentive for holiday charity drive

The Office of Student Experience is getting in the spirit, combining school spirit and holiday spirit with a prize draw to encourage participation in the campus campaign for “Adopt-a-Family.”

A program of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation, Adopt-a-Family collects gifts for local children and youths.

UWindsor offices and individuals may choose to sponsor a family as large as two parents with four kids or as small as a single parent and child. Also available for sponsorship are youths on extended care — individuals over the age of 16 years old attending school while living independently.

As part of its Windsor Proud spirit campaign, the Office of Student Experience has created a draw, with a ballot for each participating individual or department. Those already sponsoring a family are already eligible.

A winner will be drawn once all of the gifts have been collected, on November 28, to receive a customized prize package of UWindsor spirit swag. Find details on the contest website.

To sign up as a sponsor, email Sabina Howell, administrative assistant in the Office of Public Affairs and Communications who co-ordinates the campus campaign, at Sabina.Howell@uwindsor.ca.
