This year, UTSC is creating wellness kits as tangible support items. From October 25, 2019 to November 26, 2019, they are asking the UTSC community to participate in a donation drive to support women in need in Scarborough. Donation boxes will be available across campus and in the Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre (EV141).

A remembrance event will be held on November 28, 2019, during which attendees will be invited to create wellness kits from the donated items. The kits will then be provided to our community partners.
