FOOD AND GIFTS
Over the past few months the community has recognized our frontline staff members by donating thousands of meals. We are now taking this opportunity to say "Thank you!" by paying this kindness forward and supporting those in our community who could use an extra helping hand.
As of May 17, 2020, donations of food and gifts sent to our Met and Ouellette campuses will be shared with community partners working in Long-Term Care facilities, and to organizations who are supporting those facing food insecurity. We know these organizations and individuals are facing difficult times and could benefit from the same expressions of gratitude that we have been so lucky to receive over the past several weeks.
We are still gratefully accepting food donations to our St. Clair College Campus and to the hotel that a number of our staff members are residing in to isolate from vulnerable family members.
