The Mount Allison Faculty Association (MAFA) has announced its 2012 donations to local charities.

“Every year the Mount Allison Faculty Association makes donations to local charities, as a way of supporting the good work going on around Sackville,” says MAFA President Stephen Law.

This yeai MAFA is donating almost $3500 to local charities. Earlier in the year, MAFA donated $2500 in support of a Mount Allison refugee student through World Universrty Services of Canada.

Local organizations receiving support include the Sackville Memorial Hospital

Foundation, Atlantic Wildlife Institute, Sackville Christmas Cheer, Habitat for Humanity Sackville Build, Tantramar Heritage Trust, Festival by the Marsh, Tantramar Adult Learning Centre, and the Tantramar Hospice Palliative Care Organization.

“This year our members decided to support a mix of organizations that provide help to those in need, as well as educational and cultural initiatives in the community,” Law says. “Having said this, we realize that each year we can only scratch the surface when it comes to worthy organizations doing good work in the community,” Law says. MAFA is the bargaining agent for over 190 full- and part-time professors and librarians at Mount Allison University.
