SGPS Appeal: Holiday Assistance Program (9 November 2012)

As emailed to campus lists by the Queen’s Society of Graduate and Professional Students, 9 November 2012:

With the holiday season fast approaching, a number of our students face additional hardships. In particular, students with dependents struggle as they are home with their kids trying to study for exams and prepare for a holiday celebration of sorts. This year (our second year running the program), the SGPS is trying to empower student parents and relieve some of this winter stress! 

For those who are interested in making a cash donation, we have set up a Paypal account which can be found at the following link:
Please note there is a minimum donation of $5.

Alternatively, gift cards, toys, and non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the SGPS office no later than Friday, December 14th at 3pm. The SGPS Office is located in room 021 in the John Deutsch University Centre (JDUC), which is located on the north-east corner of Union and University in Kingston, Ontario.

It would be ideal if we were able to ensure everyone has a special holiday meal and enough food to carry them through the holiday season. If this is something that would interest you and/or your organization, please feel free to email SGPS VP Finance and Services, Jillian (, for more information, or to share your thoughts or ideas.
