Show us your Fall Fun!

Fall Employee Photo Submission brought to by the Mohawk College United Way Committee

The fall season is upon us and many of us are excited to celebrate in fun and different ways.

We may not be able to decorate our offices or walk the halls in our creative costumes, but we can still have fun and celebrate the season together. We are asking you, our Mohawk College family, to share a photo of how you are enjoying the season. It could be a photo of you and your family dressed up for Halloween, your home decorated for the season, or your family/friends doing something fun to celebrate this time of year. Photos will be compiled into a short video that will be shared with all employees.

Please submit your photo to mohawk.events [at] mohawkcollege.ca (subject: Fall%20Fun%20Photo%20Submission) (Mohawk Events) by Monday, November 1st. 

 

Support the Mohawk College United Way Campaign!

So many of our most vulnerable neighbors have felt the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic, especially those who were already facing barriers. The Mohawk College United Way Committee is asking you to come together with us in support of those in our community who need our help the most. Last year, the United Way was able to support over 300,000 people across our community, and, with your help, we can continue to support the programs that many of our friends and neighbours rely on.

To help raise funds towards our goal, we encourage you to donate and support the Mohawk College United Way Campaign.

When donating, ensure to select ’My gift is part of a workplace campaign’.
