John Abbott’s halls lined with loonies to raise money for students


At John Abbott College, students have lined the hallways with loonies and toonies to help others pay for rent, food, and other expenses. The strip of coins is a part of the cégep’s loonie line fundraiser, which is raising money for a student assistance fund. “You don’t really know what everyone’s going through and their situations,” said John Abbott student Sidney Ullmann. Global News reports that the cégep has seen more students in need of financial help, with the student assistance fund receiving more than double the number of requests for help compared with last year.
