SalvAide Project – Perth Campus


Algonquin College SalvAide Project

At the Perth Campus our students are taught that we must look at things from a local and global perspective.  Our Social Service Worker students do field placements in our local rural communities around Perth and in Ottawa and Kingston.  We raise money for the United Way and Big Brothers Big Sisters each year.  Our global commitment has been to rural people in El Salvador through our Algonquin College SalvAide Project done in partnership with the Ottawa based non- governmental organization SalvAide.  Part of this project involves a student delegation to El Salvador during break week and the following week.  The delegation works with youth, seniors, women, and war injured/war amputees.

Gingerbread MenThe oldest and most loved recipe that exists in my family’s recipe vault is gingerbread. I’ve been eating (and baking) these cookies since I can remember, and it is the standard by which I judge all other gingerbread. I have since learned that gingerbread comes in all shapes, sizes, textures, firmness, etc, but in my mind, nothing can touch my grandmother’s recipe.

In my household, gingerbread is a year round favorite. We don’t wait for the holidays to break out the cloves, ginger and molasses. In fact, my five year old son has already mastered the art of cutting out gingerbread men, and as soon as they’re baked, eating all of their heads off!  But Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a few tins of gingerbread on hand to share with friends and neighbors.
