On Thursday December 18th, just a few days before Christmas, the GSA took part in a small act to give back to the community. Hosted by the HSA at Ryerson University, and with the help of St. George Greek Orthodox Church, yet another successful year of Skate for Toys was accomplished. With a great turnout of executives, members, and friends from the GSA of U of T, and the HSAs of Ryerson and York, an appreciable amount of toys were donated to the CP24 Christmas Wish Toy Drive. The participants enjoyed hot chocolate and snacks at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in an attempt to warm up before the fun began. In the bitter cold Greek music played loudly and proudly at Lake Devo Skating Rink where the participants showed off their skating skills. The night seamlessly melded the Greek and Canadian cultures, bringing together song and dance on blades and ice.
Stay tuned for our events coming up in the New Year! Especially our annual trip to MTL! We cannot wait for you to see what else is in store.
