Volunteer Opportunity: Afternoon of Service with Mi’kmaq Printing and Design
UPEI's Work-Integrated Learning department is partnering with Mi’kmaq Printing and Design to provide support for Orange Shirt Day / National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Mi’kmaq Printing and Design (MPD) is a social enterprise dedicated to the celebration and education of Mi'kmaq culture. This time of year, Islanders flock to MPD to purchase their orange shirts and show their support for those effected by the Canadian residential school system.
Join us from 10:00 am–2:00 pm on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 for an afternoon of volunteering with fellow UPEI students. We'll be helping MPD get prepared for Orange Shirt Day by setting up their shop space out of St. Paul's Church in Charlottetown, organizing inventory, folding shirts, and getting orders ready for their soon-to-be influx of eager customers. Students will gain hands-on experience, develop new skills, meet new people, and make a positive difference in their community.
For more information and to register, students can fill out the online registration before 4:00 pm on Friday, September 17.
