Project Red

Thank you to everybody who decided to sponsor Project Red 2020! This year over 60 students and their families (nearly 250 individuals) were assisted through our Project Red Program! Applications for Project Red 2021 will open in early November 2021

Initiative Summary:

Project Red is an ACCSA initiative that pairs students in need during the holiday season with sponsoring groups that put together hampers for a holiday meal and gifts for the student and their family unit. It’s an ongoing tradition of collaboration between Assiniboine staff, faculty, and associates, to help brighten the holiday season for some Assiniboine students.

In light of COVID-19, the ACCSA took a number of steps in 2020 to ensure that this tradition could continue while being as safe as possible. Some of which included:

  • Receiving hampers from sponsors and distributing them to students during the final week of classes. This was done in a socially distant way, and reduced the requirement for large groups to meet with each other.
  • Digital enrollment forms for both students and sponsors were utilized to reduce the need for in-office traffic, and made it easier for students to apply for Project Red!
