Week of charity work to support orphan sponsorship effort

Some very generous students are gearing up for next week’s Charity Week.

Volunteers from the Orphan Sponsorship Program are hosting the fourth annual Charity Week, which runs October 24 to 28. Universities across Canada compete to collect funds to donate to charities. The UWindsor team has won the competition for two consecutive years, and is hoping to retain the bragging rights this year.

The week will feature a variety of activities and fundraisers, aimed at sponsoring orphans through registered charities.

The event will be held in the CAW Student Centre Commons, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Participants can find a bake sale, henna design service and a video game booth.

To learn more about the event, visit the Facebook page or the Charity Week website.
