On Saturday November 17th 2012 the Service Council helped launch the Christmas Wonders Campaign for Kerr Street Ministries. Seventy five students visited Oakville retailers in the downtown core, on Kerr Street and on Speers Road. Look for the jars at 183 Oakville retailers over the holiday season! All contributions will go to families in need at Kerr Street Ministries. 'KSM' helps Oakville residents living below the poverty line. Thank you to Dr. Jennifer Hurley, Mr. Bryce Hough, Ms. Andrea Kelly, Mrs. Kathleen Kirkpatrick, Ms. Lindsay Naumetz, Mr. Pedro Regalado and Mrs. Andy Jelinek for facilitating the day.
