Be World Ready (BWR) would like to thank the Niagara College community for supporting the new Love in Transit program. From October 11 to November 4, members of the NC community donated 81 new and gently used bags. These items are being given to local organizations, including Women’s Place of South Niagara and Village of Hope, to assist citizens who are transitioning from shelter life to independent living.

Founded by BWR team member and International Mobility Assistant Rebecca Morrison, and operated by the BWR program, Love in Transit is grounded in the belief that every person deserves to continue their path, or embark on a new one, to reach their next destination with love, care and dignity.

“In the spirit of enriching lives and fulfilling dreams, it is inspirational to see how our college community supports the needs of the greater community with initiatives such as Love in Transit,” said Gary Torraville, NC’s Senior Director, International Students. “We are so pleased to see this donation go to such a great cause that will continue to have a lasting impact on so many.”

Be World Ready will announce the next collection dates for Love in Transit shortly – stay tuned!
