Metropolia Charity is planning a Christmas fundraising event with the main goal to give toys to children in need at Christmas time. The event is planned to take place on Monday the 29th of November in Myyrmäki from 09:00-15:00.
Before we review the Christmas event lets look back at the last event. Back in September Metropolia Charity took part in Red Cross Hunger Day and raised over 1,000 Euro (estimate). The volunteers of this event will be presented with a Metropolia volunteer certificate by the Director of International Degree Programmes Marko Korkeakoski on the same day as the Christmas event. Some pics of our great volunteers below, we really appreciate their help.
The final preparations are being made for the event so please keep an eye on this post and Metropolia Charity Facebook site for updates. The main event is to request students and staff to bring a new* toy for a child on the day of the event and our partner Joulupuu will distribute the toys to children in need.
The toy for a child has certain requirments such as being a new toy or of good condition and in a box. *Please view the order form below for all the requirments.
As part of the main event the following will be organised:
