The Phoenix Bookstore is sponsoring a “Thanks for Giving” promo this week that adds up to great savings in exchange for a bit of charity. Donate canned goods for 1=10%, 2=20%, 3 or more=30% off your entire apparel and gift purchase. All proceeds go to the UW-Green Bay Campus Cupboard. Don’t miss “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” a two-day show that ends Friday (Nov. 20).

It’s a Wonderful University.” Rumor has it that there will be a lot of candy given away during this special 50th anniversary year!
