Bank on it


Skidmore alumni and parents sort 8,195 pounds of canned goods and other donated items at the Greater Boston Food Bank, chaired by Vicary Graham ’82. More than twenty volunteers—ranging from recent grads to older-timers—spent a couple of hours one December evening organizing beans, noodles, cereal, et al.—enough for about 4,000 meals. “Everyone worked hard and had a great time, with lots of conversation and laughter,” reports event organizer Leila Joseffer ’97. “Skidmore has a long history of service to the community, so it makes perfect sense to me that the Boston alumni group includes the GBFB in its events schedule. It’s fun, easy, and has tangible results.” —MTS
