Centraide fundraising campaign  

Centraide, known outside of Quebec as United Way, is an umbrella charity collecting donations to invest in one of 360 carefully chosen agencies whose mission is to improve the quality of community life within Greater Montreal. Concordia's Centraide Campaign has begun and by now you should have received your pledge form.

This Friday, Nov. 7, the popular pasta lunch will serve up full meals to caring Concordians for only $5 in the LB Atrium, with the profit going to the campaign. Meals include pasta and sauce (with veggie option), salad, juice and a roll. Invite your colleagues and friends to join you for lunch in a congenial atmosphere. It's a great chance to bump into other Concordians, and at only $5, you can afford to treat a friend.

Bake sales are a fun way to garner support for Centraide. University Communications Services will hock homemade goodies in the GM lobby in the morning on Mon., Nov. 10, and the tremendously successful ENCS bake sale will be held on Nov. 24 outside the Dean's offices on the second floor from 10:30 to 1:30 p.m.

Prize draws begin this Friday after the pasta lunch, so be sure to submit your pledge form to payroll, S-FB 1130, to be included. This week's prizes are a Reebok hockey stick, a laptop computer, a 3-month Le Gym pass, a 4GB iPod Shuffle and a return flight to New York from Norko Travel.

Other events will follow. Check the Centraide site for up-to-date details: centraide.concordia.ca
