UBC Helps Crime Victims

The UBC community rallied to support 12 young Mexican girls and their chaperones, who were robbed of more than $10,000 when their rented van was broken into late last month.

The girls were flooded with donations including sweatshirts, t-shirts, backpacks, boxed lunches and breakfasts from UBC and Alma Mater Society groups.

Associate VP Land & Building Services Geoff Atkins hosted a barbecue at UBC's International House for the theft victims, who were staying in a UBC dormitory during their trip.

Donations came from UBC Bookstore, UBC Food Services, Parking, AMS Food Services and AMS Outpost, in an effort coordinated by Personal Security Coordinator Paul Wong and Disaster Planning Coordinator Judi Van Swieten.
