Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Each December, Laurier staff member Sarah Wilkinson called upon her university colleagues to contribute a new, unwrapped gift to the annual holiday toy drive she organized in support of the Salvation Army.

Wilkinson passed away in August. In memory of their colleague, Laurier’s Financial Resources Department has partnered with the Special Constable Service to make sure her legacy of holiday giving lives on through the annual toy drive.

Faculty and staff are invited donate a new, unwrapped toy or gift by Friday, Dec. 14 at noon to one of the following locations across Laurier’s campuses

Waterloo Campus

  • Human Resources, 255 King Street, room K303
  • Financial Resources, 202 Regina Street, room R213
  • Service Laurier, Schlegel Building, first floor
  • The Bookstore
  • Special Constable Service dispatch (across from the Dining Hall)
  • Athletic Complex
  • MBA Office, Lazaridis Hall, room LH4001
  • Dean of Science Office, Science Building, room N1048

Brantford Campus

  • Special Constable Services
  • SC Johnson Building, fourth floor
  • Dean of Liberal Arts Office, Research Centre East, room 237
  • Dean of Human and Social Sciences Office, Research Centre East, room 132
  • Service Laurier, Grand River Hall

Financial Resources staff along with a special constable will collect the toys between 2 and 4 p.m. on Dec 14 and deliver them to the Salvation Army.

Gifts for children of all ages are needed and appreciated, but the Salvation Army says children aged 12-15 are those in greatest need. Gift cards, self-care items or toiletry kits make great presents for this age group.

Children ages 10-11 are also in need of gifts, as they are outgrowing mainstream toys. Items such as crafts, books, puzzles, small and big toys are ideal for children aged four to 11. Gifts for babies and teens are also welcomed.
