Niagara University gives back as part of national #GivingTuesday movement

#GivingTuesday is a national initiative, now in its fourth year, held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. The event inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities; give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support; and help create a better world.

In congruence with Niagara University’s Vincentian mission to support those in need, students, alumni and friends collected over $3,500 and more than 1,000 pounds of food and nonperishable goods Dec. 1 in association with #GivingTuesday.
