UBC Okanagan students give up Reading Week to give back

February 20, 2017 (Kelowna, BC)

Last week, UBC Okanagan students once again generously volunteered their time to help local charities through the United Way Day of Caring® Program. More than 55 students signed up through the UBC Okanagan Community Service Learning Program, and donated 180 hours of time saving the agencies valuable time and resources. Projects included indoor cleaning, painting, event support, sorting resource kits and compiling housing kits.

Participating organizations that received help were: CMHA, CRIS Adaptive Adventures, Lake Country and Rutland Boys and Girls Clubs, Living Positive Resource Centre, MCC Thrift Store, Pathways Abilities Society, YMCA, and Good Samaritan Society/Mountainview Senior’s Village.
