University Safety participates in two successful community fundraising projects

Staff members in the Department of University Safety participated in two successful community fundraising projects last fall.

In October, a group of autistic children at Featherstone Public School received a surprise visit and gift from departmental staff. Upon hearing that the class was in desperate need of clothing, toys and other supplies, Dispatcher Ron Desormeaux led co-workers in an effort that led to contributions of both money and items which were delivered to the class, just in time for Hallowe’en.

On November 26, 2006, the first annual Department of University Safety Ball Hockey Tournament was held on campus to raise money for the Shepherds of Good Hope Christmas Basket Program. Special Constable Rick Young and Fire Safety Officer Rick Percival organized the tournament and several members of the Residence Life Staff volunteered to assist.

The event raised a total of $750.00 and in December three local families received a basket that included hats, gloves and scarves, a full Christmas Supper and toys for nine children. The department would like to recognize all those who donated both their time and money to this initiative, with a special thanks to Duncan Watt, Vice-President (Finance and Administration) Ed Kane, Assistant Vice-President (University Services), and Aramark, the University’s food services provider.
