SAIT community surpasses 100 charitable projects goal
This past year, SAIT employees, alumni, students, partners and friends have been busy — being charitable that is. Setting a target of 100 charitable projects, we've reached our goal and we're still going strong.
"It's incredible — surpassing 100 projects," says Cathy Downy, Centennial Director. "It's a real testament to everyone who participated. We're so proud of what we've done together for our community.
"The 100 Projects Project is such a great opportunity for us to take our passion and enthusiasm and share it with our city, province, country and the world — we've had projects in our own backyard and around the globe. It's inspiring."
Setting our aim high
And in true SAIT fashion, simply hitting our goal of 100 projects wasn't enough. A new goal of 150 — in honour of Canada's birthday — has been set.
A project can be big or small. Volunteering with a group at a senior's home, school, or helping with a neighbourhood cleanup counts as a charitable endeavour. Even if you've already completed it, you're still able to add your project to the pile by contacting Jodi Currie.
