Skidmore Cares 2012
Let's Make 2013 Brighter!
Nine local agencies benefited from
the generosity of the Skidmore College
community as a result of Skidmore
Cares Friday in 2012.
We donated nearly 2,000 items of school
supplies and food to these agencies.
A total of $12,257 was collected:
- $7,000 from proceeds at
- $657 from students and faculty,
- $4,600 from Skidmore vendors
These funds were distributed to the
agencies in the form of Wal-Mart and
Target gift cards, enabling the agencies
to purchase the items they needed most.
December 6 is SKIDMORE CARES Friday
The Skidmore College community will gather this Friday, December 6, at Scribner House from 3 to 8 p.m. All faculty, staff, and employees are encouraged to bring the whole family. There will be supervised activities for children in the Carriage House – including the ever-popular cookie decorating! There will be performance excerpts from Beatlemore Skidmania as well as several a cappella groups. Frosty the Snowman is also expected to make an appearance!
In the spirit of the season, this is an opportunity for us to share time together as a community, and to give back to those in need. Donation items will be collected in the sleigh in front of Scribner House. Let’s make Skidmore Cares Friday bigger than ever!
Skidmore’s collective donation will be distributed among nine agencies in our area, which will in turn distribute to families in need. Benefiting this year will be:
