Offices housed in Assumption Hall, together with the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility, collected 34 boxes of goods for the student food bank administered by Iona College.
Rose Zanutto, executive director of Institutional Analysis, issued a challenge to colleagues to help fill the cupboards located in the basement of Canterbury College after learning that supplies had run low.
She says staff responded wonderfully.
“Look what we can do when we do it together,” Zanutto said as volunteers packed the foodstuffs for delivery Friday, June 21. “I’m amazed at what we accomplished.”
Sandi Rose, who manages the Campus Food Bank, thanked the donors for coming to the rescue.
“People don’t realize there are students around all summer,” she said. “We serve 50 to 60 students a week. That empties out our cupboards in one shot.”
The service provides basics and essential items to registered University of Windsor students free of cost. To make a contribution, contact Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org.
