After the recent flooding that occurred around the state, many students and organizations here at Alfred pulled together to help the victims of this disaster. Dorms have put together programs to raise funds for the victims, as well as gathered clothing and supplies. In my dorm, we have already started two events, one is a jar war to collect money and the other is a clothing and canned food drive. Later this week the RA's are putting on a "Pie your RA" program to raise more funds for the relief.
We've even had 14 heavy equipment students volunteer in Schoharie County, and on the 24th more students are volunteering to help in Johnson City. The following weekend the volunteers will be going to Catskill to help. To prepare for these trips, the campus has been working to collect supplies that are needed for these cleanups.
I think that it is really impressive to see that in times of need, our campus can pull together to help out those that need it and are willing to go out of their way to make it happen.
Thanks for reading.
