On Saturday, Aug. 10, members of the Fordham community volunteered at the NYCHA Amsterdam Houses on West 61st St., near Fordham's Lincoln Center campus, helping ensure that the residents' annual Family Day was fun for all. Volunteers joined their neighbors in serving food, hosting kid's activities, and helping clean up after a full day of city fun-in-the-sun.
