Help out the Season of Caring!

If you know about the Season of Caring, then you probably know about the Wish Tree – a chance for MRU students to make their holiday wishes with the hopes that someone will play ‘Secret Santa’ and fulfil one or more of their wishes.

Well, the SAMRU has a wish list too, and we hope that you might be able to help us fill it. Part of our Season of Caring includes holiday food hampers, donating food to the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank, and restocking the shelves of our emergency hygiene closet.

Here is just a short list of some of the items most needed this season.


Food bank items

Beans (dried and canned)

Brown & white rice

Canned fruit, vegetables, juices and protein

Dry pasta

Non-perishable sauces and seasonings



Body wash & soap

Shampoo & conditioner

Toothbrushes, toothpaste & dental floss

Tampons & sanitary napkins


Baby & toddler items

Baby food

Diapers and training pants

Infant hygiene items (shampoo, powder, oil, cleaning wipes)

PBA-free baby bottles


Winter items (new with tags)

Extra-thick winter socks

Gloves and mittens


Toques & ear muffs
