Thank you to everyone who helped us give comfort this #GivingTuesday!
The #GivingTuesday initiative is a global day of giving, and allows people from all over the world to connect about their "unselfie" work with others via social media. Organizations are encouraged to find ways to contribute to their local communities, in ways that each finds meaningful. #GivingTuesday took place this year on Tuesday, November 28, 2017.
On #GivingTuesday, the School of Communication and the Arts worked to give comfort in the form of Chemotherapy Comfort Kits. Over 175 kits were donated to Vassar Brothers Medical Center's Dyson Center for Cancer Care, Sparrow’s Nest, Albany Medical Center, and Northern Westchester Hospital. Kits have a variety of items in them, from warm knitted caps to fleece blankets to hand lotion to hard candy. Thank you for all of the time and donations provided to make this #GivingTuesday a success!
