Fundraiser at Lakehead
The Turtle Island Student Circle (TISC) will be holding a fundraiser and supply drive in support of the water protectors at Standing Rock. To encourage students, staff, faculty and community to donate, TISC is willing to match the total donation of funds raised. All of the funds will be going towards the efforts of the water protectors to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
As part of this initiative we will also be collecting supplies needed by the water protectors, which include:insulated gloves, work gloves, winter boots, winter sleeping bags (-30C), solar chargers, solar LED lights, Straight Talk or Verizon phone cards, gas cards, rechargeable batteries, flashlights and Canadian Tire money.
Please join us in the Learning Commons on Dec. 2 for an NDN Taco sale. There will be a supply drop off box available to collect any of the needed supplies. There will also be a supply drop off box available in the LUSU office for anyone who would like to make a donation outside of the fundraising hours.
