UPCOMING EVENTS :)

October 19, 2011

1// PIZZA SALE! on Friday, October 21st.
Proceeds will be going towards Free the Children to help buy supplies for a school in Sierra Leone. Come contribute to a charitable cause by purchasing our delicious pizza slices!!
Location: The Bahen Centre (BA)
Time: 1:00-2:00PM

2//SANDWICH RUN! on Thursday October 27.
A sandwich run is an outreach activity during which we make bagged lunches and walk around downtown Toronto to deliver meals to hungry people in need and to check up on the homeless to let them know that someone does care. This event is also a good way to see if you’d like to join our club on a more permanent basis as well as to meet other students and have some fun!
A $5 donation is required – this money will go towards buying the ingredients for the sandwiches. A free pizza dinner will be provided.

Schedule:
– 5:00pm – 5:45pm: Meet at White Room inside the Terrence Donnelly Centre (CCBR), on the 2nd floor of 160 College Street (between the MSB cafeteria and the bamboo garden) to make sandwiches. The centre is located on 160 College Street, and is denoted as DC in the campus map here: http://www.tinyurl.com/uoftmap.
– 5:45pm – 6:30pm: FREE pizza dinner
– 6:30pm – 8:00pm: Sandwich run (please dress accordingly for the weather, as we will be walking around the downtown area)

3// UMBRELLA PAINTING! starts NOVEMBER 1ST!
Starting November and running until April, the Out of the Cold Program for homeless youth will be starting up again all over Toronto. This year we will be joining Knox Church (on Spadina) every Tuesday night as part of their Out of the Cold Program activities. After the homeless youth have their meals, we will be running an umbrella painting workshop. We hope to have this workshop run by 4-5 volunteers a week from Eyes of Hope to maintain some sort of consistency in the lives of the homeless youth– no artistic skills are required!

If you are interested in this program, please sign up here: http://tinyurl.com/EOHootc.
Questions can be directed to community.eyesofhope@gmail.com

As well, as this project requires volunteers to work with the homeless youth in Toronto, we would like our volunteers to be prepared to work with this special community. All volunteers will need to attend one training session.
Our first training session will be on Tuesday, October 25th at 6:45PM in BA2175, and will last for about 15 minutes.

There will be more training sessions following, so if you are unable to make it to this one, there will be other opportunities to be trained and prepared to volunteer for this project.

4// MONTHLY OPEN EXEC MEETING on Tuesday, October 25th
Come out to our open executive meeting for the month of October! The open executive meeting is for anyone who would like to learn more about being a part of the leadership team at Eyes of Hope, and for people who have any ideas that they would like to share and implement with Eyes of Hope.
Location: Bahen Centre (BA), Room 2175
Time: 7:00PM (right after the first umbrella painting training session)
