One week left to help Lower Mainland families this holiday season: join Prof. Mavinic in supporting food bank and toy drive

Monday, December 14, 2015 | By Lindsay Cashin

Join Professor Don Mavinic in helping families across the Lower Mainland this holiday season. Don is coordinating efforts to support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and the Metro Vancouver Firefighters Association’s annual toy drive. There are three ways you can help:

1) Send a cheque (preferred method of aid) to your local food bank: the purchasing power of each dollar is increased threefold by a special discount from wholesale suppliers for food banks.

2) Donate hard goods to the Food Bank: no junk food or perishable items please!

3) Donate new, unwrapped toys and books: please drop items off at Professor Mavinic’s office (CEME 2004B) or the Civil Engineering office (CEME 2002).
