SUNY Oswego students support ongoing Hurricane Katrina relief

A recent Miss-a-Meal fundraiser at SUNY Oswego supported continuing recovery from a natural disaster seven years ago.

The funds are on behalf of 1,472 SUNY Oswego students who participated in this semester’s Miss-a-Meal fundraiser on April 17. Others, from left, are Craig Traub, director of resident dining for Auxiliary Services; Student Association President Jonathan McDonald; and students Carly Brundige and Mike Regina.

The once-a-semester Miss-a-Meal tradition at SUNY Oswego dates back more than half a century, benefiting a selected charitable organization each time.
