Ryerson dons toques to help community

Toque Tuesday, held across Toronto last Tuesday, was a success at Ryerson. Volunteers from the university sold toques for $7 each, and raised over $5,000 to help the homeless and other charities. The money went to the regional chapter of Raising the Roof, a national charitable organization, who will distribute the money to causes close to Ryerson. Among the beneficiaries this year are: the drop-in centre at St. Christopher House, the Stop 86 Women’s Shelter and the Regent Park Community Health Service.
