Group makes annual holiday donations
Record 20 local groups supported in 2018 by Mount Allison Faculty Association
The Mount Allison Faculty Association ( MAFA) has announced its 2018 donations to local charities.
“Every year the Mount Allison Faculty Association makes donations to local charities and organizations as a way of supporting the good work going on, in and around Sackville,” says MAFA president Jeff Lilburn.
This holiday season MAFA is donating $6,000 to a record 20 groups. Earlier in the year, MAFA donated $3,100 in support of a Mount Allison refugee student through World University Services of Canada.
“Our members decided to support a mix of organizations that provide help to those in need, as well as educational and cultural initiatives in the local and regional communities,” Lilburn says.
“We know that these times are challenging for many people and organizations, and we are pleased to support 20 organizations this year,” he says.
MAFA is the bargaining agent for 190 full- and part-time professors and librarians at Mount Allison University.
