Members who attended the CUPE 1975 Fall Social on November 18th helped the Secret Santa cause.   The Secret Santa Campaign ensures 800 Saskatoon families receive toys, books and food hampers for Christmas.  Through donations of cakes from Alexander’s Restaurant, the University Club, Food Services, Tish Jasieniuk, Kathy Jones, Shari Hannah, Gail Lasiuk, Ginny Cherepacha and other members, CUPE 1975 was able to auction off these delicious treats.    $1,041.00 was donated to Secret Santa.
