Facilities Management Lunch
On November 4, staff members from Facilities Management enjoyed a nacho lunch in support of United Way. The $442.50 raised brought us closer to our goal! A special thank you to Berniece Caughlin for organizing the lunch and preparing the gift baskets (with funds donated by Facilities Management!). Everyone had a great time!

The support staff of the School of Design and the School of Contemporary Media held a gift basket fundraiser this year for the United Way. During a staff meeting the group decided it would be nice to auction off a festive basket for the holiday season in addition to the ongoing United Way campaign. They requested donations from the faculty, admin and support staff in M3010 for the basket and received seven bottles of wine, a set of four coasters, a set of four red wine glasses, a bottle opener, a flavoured bread dipper, a coffee travel mug, a cheese-shaped candle and a lime green candle. Initially only advertised within the two schools, people coming in and out of the office from all areas of the College asked to participate for the chance to win. In the end, Ernie Kovach, a caretaker from B1008, won the prize. Through the support of all who entered we raised $362 for the United Way. The support staff would like to thank everyone who took part in this effort and for making it such a success.
On Thursday, November 6, 2008, the annual Stairclimb for United Way was held at One London Place in downtown London. Police Foundations students ran downtown from the College to One London Place in support of United Way and two teams from Residence along with College staff participated in the Climb. A total of $611.08 was raised! Thank you to everyone who participated in this event!
