We’re back on campus!

Kelowna members! We’re setting up a temporary kiosk in The Pit (S building) from August 16th-19th, 10:00am – 2:00pm. We’ll be selling bus passes (cash, credit, or debit), and providing info on the Health & Dental plan and other services.

Introducing: The Harbour Virtual Food Hamper!

The Okanagan College Students’ Union operates The Harbour as a safe space on the Penticton campus for LGBTQ2S+ folks and allies, and to share resources for students, and assist with food security for all members. Normally, we operate out of the Penticton campus, but we have had to switch to a virtual platform, for the time being, allowing us to open our services beyond Penticton.

If you are in need of assistance, please fill out the intake form to request access to the Harbour Virtual Hamper Program. This program is aimed to provide Salmon Arm and Penticton students with food security through the form of a virtual gift card (e-gift card) or a physical gift card via Canada Post.

To be eligible for this service you must be enrolled in Winter classes. You can request access once a month. All eligible students are limited to 1 hamper at a time. If you have been selected to receive a virtual hamper, you will be contacted within 5 business days and a gift card will be sent to you. Please keep in mind that if you request a physical gift card, delivery times may be longer than usual.

Remember to follow @ocsu.harbour on Instagram to stay up to date with our latest services and events. Please email wiebe@ocsu.ca, if you require further support or have any questions.
