THE XAVERIAN PEN PAL PROJECT
Disclaimer: This project is very graciously funded and supported by St. Francis Xavier University's McKenna Centre for Leadership
The recent Coronavirus outbreak has sparked major changes in our daily lives, not only within the St. FX community but on an international scale. The challenges facing us are truly unprecedented, with all of us facing new challenges. In particular, new social distancing measures can leave us feeling more isolated than ever.
In order to combat feelings of isolation, the Xaverian Pen Pal Project aims to partner up St. FX students with Antigonish residents in order to promote social solidarity and build resilient relationships within our community.
As a St. FX student-athlete, I am lucky to witness first-hand the incredibly special community that St. FX has built, not simply within the university, but through our relationships with the community of Antigonish. This close-knit community is like no other and now, more than ever, it is vital to come together and support one another.
“When crisis hits, we don't turn against each other, we listen to each other. We lean on each other. We are always stronger together."
