After a month of receiving donated scrubs, the College of New Caledonia is ready to get their biannual scrub sale underway.

On Monday (March 4), the sale will run from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at CNC’s Gathering Place.

Proceeds from the sale support the college’s “Making a Difference” bursary, which has awarded over $10,000 to students the past few years.

Instructor Nancy Esopenko states the fundraiser is a huge help for the students given the financial strain that comes with post-secondary studies.

“So, based off of the overwhelming response last year, we’re actually awarding seven bursaries this year. which will be given out in the next month, which is excellent because we normally do five.

This year we are handing seven bursaries to students with the combined total sitting at $1,750.”

“They are stressed financially nowadays so being able to offset a little bit of that in regards to buying cheaper scrubs is a great option for students plus all the money raised goes towards health sciences students.”

The scrubs will be sold for five dollars apiece.
