UofW Potluck

The Public Relations, Marketing Management, and Strategic Communications (twitter hashtag is #prmm2014) class at the University of Winnipeg PACE program is generously hosting a potluck to gather donations for WarmToes. This great group of people have been looking for a way to help WarmToes and have tapped into the diversity of the class to come up with this great potluck for socks idea.

RADIO CANADA WINNIPEG HOSTAS well as raising 877 pairs of socks that day (more came in afterwards too) they garnered some media coverage for WarmToes, you can read about the potluck at the Winnipeg Free Press Metro site here, and Danielle Keenan and our own representative, Aurora, were interviewed on ICI-Radio Canada en francais about WarmToes and the potluck (you have to click the little arrows on the right to advance to 8:38 where it starts).

We can’t express how grateful we are to this class for their incredible support to WarmToes. We thank you deeply, from our warm hearts, and we know that wherever you go in life you’ll be the leaders that inspire those around you. Merci!

Below is the original information and poster for the potluck.

The class of Public Relations, Marketing and Strategic Communications Program invites the PACE Student Body and Faculty to a Charity Potluck for WarmToes. WarmToes imparts a beautiful lesson that even something as simple as a pair of socks can create a huge impact in the lives of those in need. Since 2011, the micro charity has donated over 6800 pairs of socks. We believe in WarmToes and would greatly appreciate your support in furthering their cause.

Here are details of the event:

Date: 28th of May, 2015
Time: 12 P.M. to 1 P.M.
Venue:  Room 2BC55
Admittance: 3 Pairs of socks

What you need to do? Nothing much, really. Just come and enjoy global cuisine with a hint of kindness and love. Support WarmToes and gain your admission by donating a minimum of 3 new pairs of socks. If you wish to donate more or bring your a dish for others to sample, do let us know so we can give you a shout out on our social media channels.
