Dal leads NS-wide fundraiser to improve student food security in partnership with NS institutions

December 8, 2021
This fall, several universities and colleges across Nova Scotia took part in a fundraising campaign for Giving Tuesday to improve food security for students in Nova Scotia. Université Sainte Anne, Saint Mary’s University, Mount Saint Vincent University, St Francis Xavier University, Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Atlantic School of Theology, NSCAD University, the University of King’s College, and Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) joined campaign leader Dalhousie University to raise funds to help students across the province with groceries. The campaign saw the J & W Murphy Foundation matching gifts from individuals up to a certain amount for each institution. “Student-led programs are well-positioned to make a difference, but they can meet the need so much more effectively with our collective support,” said Lisa Murphy, co-director of the J & W Murphy Foundation.
