Doughnuts for a cause

Posted on Tuesday February 17, 2015
SUDBURY – Cambrian College’s nursing students are selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts to raise money for their upcoming humanitarian trip.
In April 2015, eight Bachelor of Science in Nursing students are travelling with eight Dental Hygiene students to Costa Rica. For ten days, these students will experience life as health care providers in a developing country.
Students will be in medical clinics in the rural communities of Los Chiles and Liberia. They will be active members of a multidisciplinary team, gaining invaluable experience working in clinics with limited resources.
The Krispy Kreme doughnuts are available for sale until Wednesday, March 4, at $10 a dozen. They will be delivered on March 11. To make your purchase, email Natalie Chevalier ( or Jennifer Toomer (
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students, and with your support we can help our students to develop culturally sensitive care and become better health professionals and individuals,” says Chevalier, a professor in the nursing program.
Donations can also be made online to the Nursing without Borders Bursary, which has been established through the Cambrian College Foundation. Contributions of $20 or more are eligible for a tax receipt. For more information, call 705-673-2900.
