Still time to join holiday charity campaign

There is still time for members of the campus community to join the Holiday Program of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society, which collects clothing, food, gift cards, toys, and personal items for local families in need.

Sabina Howell, co-ordinator of the UWindsor effort known as “Adopt-a-Family,” says the delivery date of Dec. 7 allows a chance for departments to sign up to sponsor a family.

“We can match recipients to sponsors, whether you choose a small family of a single parent and child, a large-sized family of two parents with four kids, or even a youth aged 16 to 23 living independently,” she says.

To participate, email Howell with a request at and receive a profile of the adopted family and their wishes.
