NU Collects Funds, Food For Community In Conjunction With #GivingTuesday
The week after Thanksgiving isn’t just for shopping anymore.
Students, alumni and friends of Niagara University accumulated nearly $300 and more than 840 pounds of food and nonperishable goods on Dec. 3, the 2013 edition of #GivingTuesday.
#GivingTuesday started last year as a charitable answer to the retail shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was the first time NU participated in #GivingTuesday.
The proceeds from Niagara’s efforts were distributed evenly to the Heart, Love & Soul food pantry in Niagara Falls, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Community Missions of Niagara Frontier, which also conducted its own collection in conjunction with the global movement.
