--FASA IS ORGANIZING A CONCORDIA CLOTHING DRIVE--
The collection cart will be outside the FASA office (VA-211) from October 10th to 13th during office hours. All items will be donated to the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal, and the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal.
It is time to put away your shorts and take out the cozy stuff. If you are hesitating about keeping that lovely piece that you almost never wear, you can give it to a good cause.
FASA will take care of delivery, we just ask that you wash all items you donate. We ask students from all faculties to consider what they may not need anymore, and give back to our community.
We are welcoming gently-used items such as:
Shirts and pants
Winter accesories (scarves, hats, gloves)
As well as bedding and shoes
New items such as:
Toiletries (deodorant, soap, shampoo, toothbrush & toothpaste etc.)
Diapers and wipes

Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka (Ga-niyen-gé-haa-ga) Nation are recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
