Help hungry students this holiday

Some students have financial problems so serious that they can’t buy food. Helping them get through a difficult time may mean the difference between their dropping out and continuing at university. The Concordia Multi-Faith Chaplaincy has launched their annual Student Emergency Food Fund Appeal. Over the years, the Chaplaincy has raised thousands of dollars in donations to help students.

This year, Jews, Christians and Muslims are all celebrating religious holidays around the same time, but regardless of religious rites, this season of conviviality can be lonely for some students.

Help support the fund by attending a concert hosted by Hillel and Concordia Multi-Faith chaplaincy on Sunday, December 8, at 1:30 p.m.

Helene Engel and Pierrette La Roche will perform songs from around the world which celebrate the traditions of Chanukah and Christmas. A freewill offering will be taken. All contributions will go to provide emergency food vouchers to Concordia students.

Tax receipts will be issued by Advancement and Alumni Relations for cheques or cash (in an envelope) with full address, for contributions of $10 or more.

The concert will take place in the Bronfman Building atrium at 1590 Dr. Penfield, corner Côte des Neiges. All are welcome.

For more information, contact Daryl Lynn Ross at 848-3585.

In our last issue, Nov. 21, we incorrectly identified Peter Downie’s department in Names in the News. He teaches in Journalism.
We also misnamed the director of the current Theatre Department production entitled, Marathon ’33. It is Elise (not Lise) Ménard.
The editor apologizes for the errors.
