Students of Obafemi Awolowo University trooped out in their numbers to donate clothes and other items to children and disadvantaged people during the "Project Let Go" event that was held at Students' Union Building (SUB) car park of the varsity on Friday.
Project Let Go which has been the major gist around the university campus for some days now was borne out of frown at the habit of wastage and as such the convener had encouraged youths to be benevolent by imbibing the habit of giving, empowering the society by uplifting the faces of the needy via material things like clothes, books, and even with knowledge and experiences among many other things.
Not deterred by the hectic academic schedules, hundreds of Great Ife students were at the venue of the event lined up as they donated more than 700 items, majorly clothes. In less than an hour, the convener Janicuts; a trailblazing fashion brand gave out more than a hundred items including t-shirts, hats, books, and shoes to the donors. Apart from the refreshment packages given to various participants and donors at the event by Jo's Indulge, Vertile Couture also complemented Janicuts to give out female gowns to participants.
The event which was anchored by Mc Sleekie and Ore Ajewole had interesting moments up as participants were given freebies including Data Bundles as they participate in event lightening contests. Present at the event were the Students' Union officers; SU Public Relations Officer, Bamidele Oludare who declared the event opened and SU Assistant Secretary General, Louis Awode among many other student leaders and celebrities.
Speaking with our correspondent at the end of the event, the CEO of Janicuts and Project Let Go convener, Ajani Oluseyi feels good about the event and was glad it lived up to its expectation. "I feel good. The turn up by students is quite massive. In less than one hour, we have given out more than a hundred shirts and foods to the participants. Considering our frown at wastage and encouragement of people to give, I will say the event has surely lived up to its expectation"
