Other ways Carleton cares

Carleton Cares Tsunami Relief Committee

In the first week back in January, Carleton formed a tsunami relief committee. Volunteers from across the campus came together to organize a kettle drive that brought in $5,730, which was donated to Save the Children Canada on January 11. Save the Children Canada was one of the charities for which the Government of Canada agreed to match all donations.

Memorial Service

On January 10, Carleton held a University-wide memorial service, both to support those affected by the tragedy, and to offer respect for the thousands of lives lost.

Food Services

Carleton’s Department of Housing and Conference Services and food service provider, Aramark, donated a portion of the total food sales on Friday, January 7, for a total of $1,000.

Residence Life

Students and staff in Carleton’s residence community held multiple fundraising activities throughout January. The goal was to raise $5,000 by February 2. Activities included a Tropical Island Night, a candlelight skate night along the Canal, a toonie drive, and a residence-wide garage sale, which will be held in Fenn Lounge, Residence Commons from 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on February 2. After the sale closes, the residence community will announce the grand total for all their fundraising activities in Fenn Lounge at 9:30 p.m.
