Students make MHC proud

November 22, 2017
With the holiday season approaching, students are getting in the spirit of giving through a variety of efforts to support those in need here on campus and in the community. Socks for the homeless, support for men's health, and gifts for children are just a few ways students are stepping up to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

Sock it to 'em

Second year nursing students are looking for help from the college community as they work with some of the city's most vulnerable people. The students launched a sock drive today to collect new socks for the homeless population, a critical need for those living on the streets.

"Foot care is a really big issue," says Alexandra MacKinnon, noting the cold and snowy weather conditions this fall have increased the demand for social services. "We recognize the need and are excited to be making a difference."

Drop boxes are available at security, the library, the Students' Association office, and in the E Wing now until Nov. 29.

Muzzy Medics

Muzzy for Medics

While an abundance of mustaches is common this time of year, paramedic students are taking their fundraising efforts to the next level this Movember. In addition to men growing the traditional stache, female students are also setting aside their razors and growing their leg and armpit hair. Together, their fundraising effort, "Muzzy for Medics" has raised approximately $2,300.

Rattlers Toy Drive
Sharing the spirit of Christmas

Rattlers athletes held a toy drive for the Santa Claus Fund this month and collected over 100 toys to help make sure all children in the community can experience the joy of the holiday season. MHC employees and Rattlers have also volunteered to take five shifts at the Santa Claus Fund to help sort toys.
