Volunteers show holiday spirit

A holiday party at Western Thursday will bring cheer to young children with disabilities.

Students from the Ashley Oakes primary school will attend a festive party from 10 - 11:30 a.m. at The Wave on Dec. 6.

This is the third year the Children with Disabilities Holiday Party will take place, thanks to funding from an anonymous donor and support from the University Students' Council, said USC VP-campus issues Sera Vavala, adding the Sigma Nu fraternity will also be volunteering their time.

USC president Mike Lawless will sing holiday songs and Santa Claus will make an appearance.

Any students interested in volunteering can come to The Wave at 9 a.m. on Dec. 6.

$3 million down, only two more to go

The United Way of London and Middlesex has raised over $3 million towards their $5 million goal for this year's campaign.

Several events will be held over the next few weeks to help raise more money, said Kathryn Yorke, communications director for the United Way.

"Sixty-five per cent of money raised is by employees of over 1,500 workplaces across London and Middlesex," she said. "All the money raised is allocated to 40 agencies and 60 programs throughout London-Middlesex."
