Faculty Association makes annual holiday season donations

The Mount Allison Faculty Association (MAFA) has announced its 2010 donations to local charities.

“Every year the Mount Allison academic staff makes donations to local charities, as a way of supporting our community,” says MAFA President Richard Hudson. This year MAFA is donating $2500 to local charities, after having provided financial support to educators in Haiti early in the year.

“In these difficult times it is important for individuals and institutions with the means to support the good work going on in our community,” Hudson says.

Local organizations receiving support include the Amherst Women’s Shelter, Sackville Food Bank, Sackville Public Library, Atlantic Wildlife Institute, Tantramar Heritage Trust, Lillian Albon Animal Shelter, and the Tantramar Hospice Palliative Care Organization.

MAFA is the bargaining agent for over 190 full- and part-time professors and librarians at Mount Allison University.
