Kwantlen coat drive

Kwantlen’s second annual coat drive is well underway.

The event is coordinated by Kwantlen’s PAT (President’s Ambassadorial Team) and all donations will go to the Front Room, a drop-in shelter in Surrey, as well as the Langley Boys & Girls Club.

The PATS are encouraging Kwantlen students, staff and community members to help make this winter warmer for someone by dropping off new or gently used coats. Drop boxes are located in all Kwantlen campus libraries from now until Dec. 16.

To coincide with the coat drive, the PAT is hosting Christmas bake sales at each campus, offering free coffee and tea with every donation. All money raised will go towards buying new gloves, toques, socks and underwear for the two deserving organizations.

The Presidential Ambassadorial Team is a group of 15 Kwantlen students from all disciplines who have a keen interest in community advocacy and volunteerism and volunteer a minimum of five hours a month as well as maintaining their full-time studies.

For questions about the bake sale or coat drive, please contact Hayley Woodin at hayleywoodin@gmail.com

Anyone wishing to make a cash donation, please contact Shelley Coburn at shelley.coburn@kwantlen.ca
