Community Appeal kicks off Feb. 4

 
2009-02-02

The Queen's Community Appeal introduces its annual campus campaign with a free kick-off pancake breakfast at Grant Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 7:30 – 9:30 am.

Join celebrity volunteer servers, along with musical guests, Samba, from the School of Music. There will be door prizes, including two spots to play along side celebrity players in the Limestone Classic hockey tournament at Feb Fest, Feb. 3-8 in downtown Kingston.

All staff, faculty and retirees are invited to join in the celebratory kick off – regardless of whether or not they plan to make a donation.

The appeal is meant to be a campus community builder and an opportunity to showcase the outstanding work of Queen's locally, nationally and globally. The annual initiative also aims to unite faculty, staff, and retirees in the belief that small financial contributions
can collectively make a big impact.

The appeal supports several initiatives and projects including Ban Righ Centre, which supports mature women students; PREVNet, helping kids and parents prevent bullying; medical research and creating the next generation of Canadian doctors and accessible Queen's education through scholarships and bursaries.

This year, the appeal's goal is to increase engagement by increasing the number of donors to 800. Last year, the campaign raised more than $660,000 with donations from 698 members of the campus community.
