Laurier staff member collecting Roll up the Rim tabs for the homeless making headlines

Feb 20/14

Cec Joyal, a development officer at Laurier, is once again collecting winning Roll up the Rim tabs to distribute to people experiencing homelessness as part of Kitchener-Waterloo's Out of the Cold program. This year's edition of the Roll up the Rim contest may have only started on Feb. 17, but  Joyal's efforts are already receiving plenty of attention from local media. 

Joyal has been featured by CTV Kitchener, CBC K-W, CKWR and in The Waterloo Region Record

Last year Joyal collected nearly 600 winning tabs for the homeless. This year her goal is to hit 1,000.

To contribute, bring your winning tabs to the drop box at International News on Laurier's Waterloo campus or directly to Joyal's office in Alumni Hall, either in person or through interoffice mail. On the Brantford campus, tabs can be sent to Alumni Relations and Development Officer Beth dela Rosa in the SC Johnson Building, room 102.

For more information, contact Cec Joyal at or 519-884-0710 ext. 3864.
