Canisius students taking the Identity and Power (HON 236) class are leading a Venmo fundraiser to purchase coats for the Afghan refugees who will stay in the Delavan Townhouse complex at Canisius.

Our students are in the process of creating a warm welcoming atmosphere for our guests who were forced to leave their homes due to unfortunate conditions in their country. Lightly-used coats are also accepted forms of donation. Please contact Hawa Saleh (

Campus Ministry is also accepting checks for this project.  Please see the attached flyer for QR codes for the Venmo account and a video created by the group.
Anything helps!

This effort is a part of the social action projects for HON 236: Identity and Power.
