Champlain Lennoxville Students who live in residence got their exam care packages early this year. Meant to go out to students on the 24 to the 26 of November, in time with the start of exam season, the delivery of the packages was moved up to this Wednesday in order to get the majority of them into the hands of the students before the region’s Red zone restrictions come into effect.
Jacob and Scott Legouffe from the Gaspé region are seen here receiving two of the 350 care packages that were made available this year. Although many of these were handed out to students who registered for them in advance over the course of Wednesday morning, any leftovers were taken to the Champlain building for further distribution as needed.
According to Champlain recreation technician Sheila Quinn, who was helping to hand out the care packages, this year’s program is also distinctive in that the cost of the box was entirely covered by the Champlain Students’ Association.
