Laurier Supporting SickKids has many events throughout each semester, and the profits from each event go directly to SickKids, and help SickKids Hospital in a variety of ways. Whether it is helping purchase new equipment for the hospital, helping provide different entertainment devices for the children, or helping create spaces for the families of the children, each donation goes a long way. The next upcoming event for LSS is a Holiday Gift Wrapping event, where we will be wrapping any of your holiday gifts, selling chocolates, and allowing anyone to send a card to a kid at SickKids for a donation of their choice. These cards will put a smile on the children’s faces, and will help make their holiday season that much better.
