Record Participation in Fast for Oxfam

Thu., Nov. 20, 1986

Almost 900 students, along with 25 faculty and staff members participated in Oxfam America's "Thirteenths Fast for a World Harvest". A contribution of over four dollars for each participant was made to Oxfam America. The Dickinson community participated in the fast along with college campuses across the country. The Oxfam program had been in effect for over eight years and experienced a significant increase in participation from the preceding year at Dickinson. The fast ended with a celebration in the Social Hall at 5 p.m., including songs, reading, and prayers in five different languages.
