Giving Back This Halloween

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at U Vic chapter.


Me to We is an organization started at UVic to engage students to become leaders and support developing countries through volunteer work. They are known for previous events like Halloween for hunger and this year “We Scare Hunger”.


On October 27th they have a bake sale in the Clearihue lobby and you can pay with cash or with non-perishables. All donations go straight to the UVSS food bank. The UVSS food bank is located in the basement of the SUB, they accept donations year-round and also are frequently looking for volunteers!

Circle K, an international collegiate service organization sponsored by Kiwanis International is organizing this years Trick or Eat Event. Trick or Eat is an annual Canada-wide event where volunteers go door-to-door asking for non-perishable food donations to donate to the Mustard Seed. The Mustard Seed is a “non-profit fighting hunger and restoring faith to hurting souls in Greater Victoria”.

Trick or Eat is a way to raise awareness about hunger in Canada. Every year hundreds of students participate and receive thousands of dollars in food donations. This year they are meeting at 5:30 pm in Bob Wright B150. All events should conclude by 9pm if you still want to go out and dance the night away. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.

Give everyone the opportunity to dance the night away this Halloween.
