Hillel Students in 67 Colleges Contribute $176,000 to Jewish Welfare Causes

A total of $176,132 has been contributed to community and welfare organizations by Jewish students at 67 campuses in the United States as a result of the 1948-49 B’nai B’rith Hillel Foundations fund-raising drives, Rabbi Arthur J. Lelyveld, national director of the Foundations, announced today. Additional reports are still coming in from the remaining 130 units of the Foundations which operate on college and university campuses throughout the U.S., Canada and Cuba.

Chief beneficiary of the funds, Rabbi Lelyveld stated, was the United Jewish Appeal, but allocations were also made by the student committees and student councils in charge of the drives to numerous other organizations.
