Advent Drive for Young Families
Imagine what it would have been like for Mary and Joseph: to be young, in a foreign land and with no place to give birth. Then imagine what an honour it would be to provide them with necessary provisions and refuge. For Advent, our faith community will be welcoming donations of diapers, clothing, sleepers and other items needed for the care of infants. Please bring your unwrapped and new gifts to honour the Christ-Child. Donations can be left at W139. Your gifts will be given to the London Crisis Pregnancy Centre, to assist families who struggle with the financial obligations of raising a child. Donations accepted until Christmas.

In partnership with  GivingTuesday.ca, King's is challenging alumni, students, employees and friends to give back on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. It is a time to celebrate and encourage activities that support charities and non profits. Whether it's making a donation, volunteering time, helping a neighbour or spreading the word, Giving Tuesday is a movement for everyone who wants to give something back.

If you are on campus, join the King's Foundation team for coffee and treats as we say thanks to our donors and volunteers. Giving Tuesday donations will be accepted throughout the day, and can be made in person at the King Centre or  online.

Share your support and challenge others to participate in this national day of giving by using  #igivetokings in your social media posts.

Pre-registration is required at csd@kings.uwo.ca or 519-433-3491 ext.4321.
