About the Many Hands Project

Updated: May 2021

The Many Hands Project is temporarily on hold for the 2021/2022 academic year. We know it has been a tough year for all of our not-for-profit organizations and we wish you all the best in the upcoming year. Thank you for your continued support of our program and students and we hope to be able to re-launch the project next year.

As Niagara College continues to institute measures to protect the health and safety of our students, employees and our community, while complying with directives from government, our three Many Hands Project events including BurgerFest (March 25), A Night in Vegas (March 27), and “DRAG” yourself to TRIVIA (April 9) are cancelled.

The Niagara College staff is disappointed but we are extremely proud of the hard work and efforts made by all of the Event Management students. Although the events were cancelled, through the generous donations of some ticket buyers and sponsors, the Education Foundation of Niagara was provided funds to help students pursue an education. We are thankful to all who supported us.

Applications for our 2019/2020 Many Hands Project are now closed.

We are proud to announce that our 2019/2020 Many Hands Project Recipient is the Education Foundation of Niagara! All funds raised from this year’s project will go towards the creation of student bursaries for DSBN students looking to pursue post-secondary education at Niagara College.

The Many Hands Project is a student-driven community project run by the Event Management Program in the School of Hospitality, Tourism and Sport at Niagara College. The Event Management program students will plan and execute fundraising events throughout the academic year to raise money for the deserving recipient.

Now in its 23rd year, the student-led Many Hands project will provide resources for the much-needed programming that supports Niagara Region’s vulnerable citizens. The value of this project will be approximately $5,000.


To develop community co-operation and pride through volunteer-driven projects aimed at assisting non-profit organizations in the Niagara Region.
