Fix the 6ix was live for it’s pilot project March 7 to March 31 2016 at York University. With a team of about a dozen volunteers, we mobilized 18 gift card donation stations and hosted 5 campus tabling events to collect gift card donations to help the homeless.

We had a fantastic start collecting 428 gift cards over the 4 week pilot campaign period, totaling over $2400 in gift card credit.

Thank you to all student council offices, campus restaurants, clubs and faculty for the support of the pilot project!
