Habitat Week from Oct. 1 – Oct. 4 !!

September 25, 2012

Eyes of Hope and Habitat for Humanity University of Toronto are pleased to co-organize events for Habitat Week! The purpose of Habitat Week is to bring awareness to the lack of affordable housing and the role of Habitat for Humanity in tackling the problem. We will be organizing fundraising events – bake sale, pizza sale and construction wood signing- to contribute towards the $80,000 campaign of building an affordable home for a family in need. We hope you can be part of this event, and add little more happiness to the community we are living in!

To sign up: please fill out the form athttp://tinyurl.com/HabitatWeekVolunteerSignUp) by the end of Friday, Septembre 28th.

For all the bakers out there, it’s time to bring out the flour and sugar! We need tonnes of yummy baked goods for our bake sale. If you’re interested, please sign up on the Volunteer Form as well. We can reimburse you for the material cost as long as you bring your receipt.

Sandwich Run!

September 19, 2012

We will be having a sandwich run on Thursday, September 27th, 2012. 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 would be appreciated – 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 Medical Sciences Building Rm.3231 (1 Kings College Circle, UofT) to make sandwiches
– 5:45pm – 6:30pm: FREE pizza dinner
– 6:30pm – 7:30 pm: Sandwich run
