On November 16, Fordham’s Commuting Students’ Association’s celebrated Thanksgiving at its annual Thanks-Give-Away. The event raised $1,300 and four crates of canned goods for those in need and drew more than 300 students, and faculty to the McGinley Center. This year’s Wild West theme found its way into crafts, games, photo booth costumes, and for the more daring, a mechanical bull. The B-Sides, The Ramblers, and Hot Notes provided music, while volunteers collected donations and sold raffle tickets to raise funds for the POTS food pantry and for hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
