Clarkson University Students Raise $500 for Potsdam Holiday Fund
The Clarkson University Executive Dorm Council and Office of Residence Life raised $500 for the Potsdam Holiday Fund earlier this month, when teams of Clarkson University students, faculty and staff competed in the "Holiday Hoops" basketball tournament.
The Potsdam Holiday Fund is grateful to everyone who took part in the tournament, said Potsdam Holiday Fund Board Member Michael P. Griffin. "We especially want to thank the Executive Dorm Council for all of their hard work. These students have been raising money annually for the fund for the past eight years and we sincerely appreciate it."
Prizes and refreshments for the competitors were provided by local sponsors, including the Computer Guys, Great Northern Printing, First Crush, Jreck Subs, Northern Music & Video, the University Bookstore, Pizza Hut, Dunkin Donuts, Arby's, Burger King, Giant Tiger, P&C Foods, Dominos, Aramark, Videorama and the Clarkson Executive Dorm Council.
The Potsdam Holiday Fund provides new toys, clothing, boots and food to more than 250 needy families and senior citizens in the Potsdam area, including 370 children.
