Christmas Card Campaign

Posted on Updated on

The scholarship committee is responsible for the Christmas Card Campaign this year. For a $25 donation, you will receive a charitable receipt and a beautiful Christmas card in thanks.

This year we have formed a collaboration with Journalists for Human Rights. Their scholarships for the Loyalist-Trent Summer Initiative supports 2 Aboriginal students who want to study journalism and practice it in their communities. This enables them to have a greater voice in Canadian media and gives them economic opportunities. The proceeds from this card campaign will go to support these scholarships.

Please support us in this endeavour! We will be accepting donations at the November general meeting and the Christmas Party.

You may also support the campaign by contacting Katrina Cross at  bkrdcross@gmail.com or Linda Richardson at  richardsonle@hotmail.com
