On Thursday, November 17 at our northeast Welcome Centre, and Tuesday, November 22 at our southeast location, CIES had the pleasure of hosting a joint yard sale and bake sale run by students to raise money for the United Way Campaign.
Students had the opportunity to rent their own table where they sold handcrafted goods or baking, with 100% of the table rental supporting the United Way which assisted over 177,000 people in 2015. A great opportunity for students to meet one another and practice their employment and English skills, this fundraiser also allowed many to show off their hidden talents for arts, crafts, cooking, and clothing design.
The extra proceeds made from sales at these tables were left to the students' discretion, but we're pleased to announce that several classes pledged their profits to the United Way's campaign and the mission to improve lives and build communities here in Calgary.
Here are some of the photos from the event. To see the complete album, check us out on Facebook.
