Part-time students support campus food bank

The Organization of Part-time University Students (OPUS) is joining with Iona College in an effort to fill the shelves of the student food bank located in the college’s home at 208 Sunset Avenue.

The organization has donated $200 and is fielding a team of volunteers to collect canned foods and other non-perishable items.

“We encourage everyone to get involved and help those in need and make a difference this holiday season,” says executive director Maryan Amalow. “We appreciate your generosity in advance as this will be beneficial for students.”
