On February 27, the College hosted its sixth annual Pink Shirt Day festival for the campus community. Students learned about kindness, caring, compassion, and respect, and were asked to #PinkItForward.
With the help of student volunteers, who clocked a total of 57 hours of service, students made bullying awareness buttons, answered trivia, took selfies wearing pink, and shared messages of kindness. They enjoyed popcorn, cotton candy, pink lemonade, and pink cake, thanks to the Alumni Association, Chartwells, and the LSU.
Representatives from Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services, KOM Community Police, and the Canadian Mental Health Association also came out to show their support. These important community resources raised awareness alongside campus partners Counselling Services, Accessibility Services, Sexual Respect Ambassadors, and Safety & Security.
Together, we raised $1,517 for the CKNW Orphans’ Fund to help support anti-bullying programs across the Lower Mainland!
