Muslim Students Association Raises $45k for Children’s Charities

HUNTER COLLEGE–There were the usual third floor offerings: Monday and Tuesday consisted of bakes sales; Wednesday offered customized notebooks and art pieces; Thursday was “game day,” where students were able to walk up and pay to play from a collection of popular games. But by Friday the events entailed live performances, spoken word and an auction for attendees to bid on a variety of beautifully painted art pieces, one of which was imported from Morocco

And when it was all over, Charity Week, an annual event hosted by the Muslim Student Association in the last week of October, had raised nearly $45,000, which they donated to efforts to aid children across the globe.
