The Department of Advancement and Alumni Affairs at Algoma University will be participating in the Giving Tuesday movement for the first time in the school’s history.

Giving Tuesday is a global movement aimed to unleash the power of giving and generosity.

The special day started with a simple idea to be a counterpoint to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  

On Giving Tuesday, people and communities around the world celebrate the impact of giving by supporting causes close to their hearts.

Algoma University says it is celebrating the day by helping who matters most – its students in need.

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, the school is asking the public to help them kick off the giving season by making a difference in the lives of Algoma University Thunderbirds through the newly established Student Relief Fund.

The fund will support students with transportation and housing needs, childcare support, technology needs, and financial support due to job loss while seeking out new employment, as well as food costs.

Gifts will make a direct impact on the lives of students who may not otherwise be able to carry on with their studies because of the obstacles they are facing, the university said in a news release.
