ABOUT OCAD U SIKH STUDENTS ASSOCIATION (SSA)
The OCAD U Sikh Student Association—under the umbrella organisation of Experience Sikhi-The Sikh Youth Federation—aims to provide a welcoming environment for all students, regardless of whether they come from a Sikh background or not. Our goal is to educate one another to understand and raise awareness about what Sikhi is. This allows us to break barriers and misunderstandings that may exist about Sikhi and Sikhs. Through various events such as Game Nights, Paint Nites, and exploring Sikh Art History, along with prayer evenings and discussions with guest speakers, we will create a friendly community to experience Sikhi.

Winter Clothing Drive 2017*

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 10:00am to Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 4:00pm

We are looking for gently used or new:

> socks
> and winter accessories

All donations will be distributed at the Allan Garden Food and Clothing Share (Sundays, 12-3 PM, Allan Gardens, Sherbourne/Carlton Streets).

As the city of Toronto continuously shuts down shelters and emergency services to our friends in homeless or low-income situations, and as rates and rent rise unrelentingly amidst a city bursting with wealth and austerity, we turn to community to help in hard times. We hope to see you soon, and with peace to all. Please spread the word and let your friends and family know!"

* This is a student-run initiative, three years running, which #ocaducampuslife is pleased to help promote.
