FSU Adopt-A-Student Family

Summary

Bring the spirit of the season to those who need it most at Fanshawe College. Fulfill holiday wishes and provide basic necessities to vulnerable families within our student population.

Vision

Following a tradition that has spanned 15 years, the Fanshawe Student Union (FSU) is adopting a family for the holiday season. This year, we are adopting 4 (four) families within the Fanshawe College student population.

Unfortunately, there are students at Fanshawe who can’t go home for the holidays or are having difficulty making ends meet at this time of year. A little extra help during the holiday season would ease this burden and add some much needed holiday cheer.

The FSU Adopt-A-Student Family program provides an avenue for alumni, friends, family and staff to help those who need it most within our student population.

You can help support the success of the FSU Adopt-A-Student Family program by donating between November 18, 2020 and December 11, 2020. Funds received from this program will be used to purchase basic necessities, food items and various other items such as winter clothing, children’s clothes, books and toys. FSU Catering Services will also provide a meal to the student families that are selected.

You are making a season magical for a family by providing basic necessities, some gifts for under the tree and a meal without a further financial burden.

Impact

4 (four) student families will benefit from this campaign. Together we can make the holidays special for our student families in need.

Eligible students and/or student families must be registered at The Sharing Shop https://www.fsu.ca/the-sharing-shop and are chosen by the FSU. Donated funds will be allocated toward basic necessities, food items and various other items such as winter clothing, children’s clothes, books and toys. FSU Catering Services will also provide a hot meal to the student families that are selected.
