CUNY Campaign Extended to February 28
Following Hurricane Sandy, CUNY’s students and staff outdid themselves in reaching out to the victims of the storm. But there is more to be done. There are still people out in the cold as a result of the superstorm. But help is available.
To ensure that families in the community are still getting the support they desperately need, Safe Space NYC, a Queens-based nonprofit that has been working in the community for over thirty years, is providing long-term support and case management planning to help families get back on their feet. Safe Space NYC is one of the charities sponsored by The CUNY Campaign.
That’s why it’s so important to understand that you can donate to Sandy Relief, along with dozens of other causes, through The CUNY Campaign. Just as important, your gift can help CUNY students, many of whom rely on the programs and scholarships that are provided through support from the Campaign.
Because the need remains so great, the deadline for contributions has been extended until February 28, 2013.
The form for new pledges and donations can be filled out and submitted online from the CUNY Campaign website at http://www.cuny.edu/site/campaign.html. If you are already contributing through a payroll deduction and wish to change your pledge, call the CUNY Campaign Coordinator, Hillary Cohen for assistance. Every dollar you give will make a difference in someone’s life. And that someone might be your neighbor.
