CNC Students Give Back
Prince George, B.C. – A moving display of generosity at the St. Vincent de Paul Society Drop-in Centre today.
Students in CNC’s Job Education and Training program (JET) dropped off 25 so-called ‘Jet Packs’ to the less fortunate.
The packs included hats, mittens, scarves, socks, Tim Horton gift certificates and hygiene products.
The JET program prepares people with learning difficulties for entry-level positions with local companies.
“Today is pretty exciting for us,” said program coordinator Jason Dauvin. “We got donated some money for some efforts we did cleaning up litter near CNC and the students actually decided to donate and give it to people who need it on the streets.”
“Today is a very good day,” added Andy Ross, a JET student. “I believe it’s a very wonderful thing that we’re donating some items for people who really need our help.”
Denise Boulanger, assistant coordinator at the St. Vincent de Paul Society, agreed.
“We love it. We’ve been desperate for warm things for people. We’ve been opening the doors a bit early in the morning because it’s just so cold out there. So, anything that people can bring is greatly appreciated.”
