Students got spooked for a good cause!
The USC Haunted House aimed to scare Western students, while collecting donations for Western’s Food Support Services. The Haunted House is an annual tradition, that is student acted and run. It is organized by the USC Charity Committee.
The attraction brought in lines of Western students this week. While the event was free, non-perishable food items or monetary donations were requested. Western Food Support Services helps University students in need with food donations and financial assistance.
The house was set up in the Mustang Lounge in the University Community Centre, as a joint effort between Western USC’s Charity and Production teams. According to Tish Lewis, a Haunted House coordinator, the house took “almost a week and half” to physically set up. The Charity Committee received funding from the USC for the event, and from several local London sponsors.
USC Charity hosts many events yearlong to encourage students to play a larger charitable role in their communities. Their next event will be their Children’s Holiday Party closer to the Holiday Season.
