In honour of International Women’s Day, the SAS Pride Action Team is once again running a drive to collect period care supplies to donate to the SAFE Society in Salmon Arm.
Period care can be expensive, and too often people have to choose between eating or buying period care products. Lack of access to period care in shelters and donation funded support groups can lead to the use of unsafe or unsanitary replacements of this basic necessity.
Donations of new, unopened packages of period care products will be accepted at the Counselling Centre until March 12th.
If you plan to attend Okanagan College, enter at the link above for a chance to win $5000 towards tuition. Contest is open to both grade 11s and 12s, and closes on May 14, 2021.
Reminder to grade 12 students and parents/guardians: Some universities have early admission deadlines beginning in December. In particular, UBC and UBC-O will consider applications for early offers of admission if received by December 1, 2020. This date is also the application deadline if students wish to be considered for Entrance Scholarships.
The UBC application online involves a personal profile that will take time to complete, so take a look soon if you plan to apply there by this early admission deadline! Click on the UBC logo above to go to the UBC application website.
