Posted on March 22, 2013

KINGSTON, ON  – Mar. 20, 2013 – Student volunteers descended on local Kingston charities to volunteer their time, talents and creativity at the annual Commerce Has Heart event on March 20. This year’s efforts benefited non-for-profit partners Martha’s Table, Dawn House Women’s Shelter, the Boys and Girls Club, Canadian Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity.

Organized by the Commerce Society, this year’s event attracted 80 Commerce students who rolled up their sleeves and helped with renovation efforts at Dawn House Women’s Shelter and Martha’s Table by painting many of the rooms. Students at Canadian Cancer Society also helped in making donation boxes and rolled over 20,000 pennies.
