On Saturday, October 31, Kingsway College in partnership with New Life SDA Church and New Life Neighbourhood Centre held a Youth Rally at 5 pm at 33 Olive Avenue, Oshawa. The event was attended by students from Kingsway College as well as youth from other churches in the Durham area. Also in attendance were individuals from the community nearby who had been invited by the students.
Motivational speaker, Jeremy Anderson, encouraged and challenged those present to be the best they can be. Mayor John Henry also attended in support of the youth and the event. Following the event everyone enjoyed soup and sandwiches provided by Chef Will.
Earlier that day the students partnered with Neighbourhood Centre volunteers to distribute hot coffee and 100 care packages to the homeless and those in shelters in downtown Oshawa. They also extended an invitation to the individuals that they met to join them at the rally.
