On Giving Tuesday, more than 60 members of the college community made gifts to the Daemen Care Fund, which provides emergency assistance to students in need. These donations will help provide students access to resources for remote learning and assistance for housing, groceries, transportation, and other unforeseen financial needs many students are facing amid this crisis.
