Art and school supply drive for University of Bahamas


Hurricane Dorian devasted the Bahamas earlier this month, including the Freeport campus of the University of the Bahamas. In support of their students, OCAD U is organizing a drive for art and general school supplies.

Drop your donations off in the bin at OCAD U Faculty of Art office (MCA 401) by Thursday, October 3, and we’ll organize the shipment to Nassau, to help Bahamian students get back to their studies.

Some students have already generously committed to giving their orange Above Ground bags from Orientation. Perhaps you got some supplies you don’t think you need? Please consider donating them. Other suggested donations include notebooks, pens and journals.

OCAD U has been working with the University of the Bahamas on a mobility exchange partnership. We’ve been in direct contact with staff there following the disaster, and they have indicated these needs. Help us support our new friends by donating whatever you can.
