End diabetes, rock out
The Western Diabetes Association is throwing the “concert of the year” Saturday by fusing kickass music and charity.

“It’s an event to come hang out with your friends and feel good about doing something for a worthy cause,” said Jay Gilbert, WDA President.

The event includes a 50/50 draw and a silent auction.

Tickets are $7 at the door. Proceeds go to diabetes research.

Robin Hood Project wants merry men and women to donate
Anyone in a giving mood can help the homeless by donating to a food and clothing drive Monday at the North Campus Building.

The initiative, entitled “The Robin Hood Project,” is organized by Western student Danielle Dekay. The drive runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m at a table in the main foyer.

“Serving the interests of London’s homeless community is a step toward building a livable global community,” Dekay said.

All food and clothing items are welcome, but Dekay said the project needs socks, towels and hygienic items in particular. Proceeds go to the Unity Project, a non-profit organization providing emergency shelter for the homeless.

Donators with large loads need not haul their goods to the North Campus Building; they can provide Dekay with their addresses and the Robin Hood Project will collect the items from their homes.

For more information, contact Dekay at ddekay@uwo.ca or 519-878-1182.
