English students put an unexpected surplus to good use last week, making a $300 donation Friday to Windsor’s Welcome Centre Shelter for Women.
The money was raised by students in Marty Gervais’ publishing practicum course for the April 5 launch of three books they shepherded into print.
“After we covered the costs of our event, we had some funds left in reserve,” Gervais explains. “The students strongly felt the cause at the shelter was worth supporting.”
The centre provides emergency shelter to women experiencing homelessness.
