Fordham Supports Amsterdam Houses

Fordham will be participating in Amsterdam Addition Family Day, Saturday, July 27 starting at 10 a.m., and  for the Amsterdam Houses Family Day again on Saturday, Aug. 10. For both Family Days, the annual all-day festivals  draw residents of the Amsterdam Houses, elected officials, and other not-for-profit institutions (including John Jay College and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts) in celebration of community, family, food, music and much more. 

Volunteers from the Fordham community are needed to help set up tables, distribute food to elderly residents, hand out literature regarding education opportunities and provide activities for the kids. It is a chance to serve as role models for the young people in a community near the Lincoln Center campus.

 Please respond if you are interested in volunteering by Friday, July 25 
to Lesley A. Massiah-Arthur at (718) 817-3023. 
Volunteers will meet at the Lincoln Center Campus at 9:45 am and walk to the Amsterdam  Addition and Houses location near West 64th Street, volunteering until 4 p.m.
