Both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have provoked a large outcry from Missouri State students to take their compassion to the next level. Missouri State is home to students from the entire Gulf Area, Florida, the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and more. The impact of both hurricanes will be felt for months and years to come. If your next question is “what can I do?”, the Center for Community Engagement has an answer for you.
In partnership with Convoy of Hope, Missouri State students and the Center for Community Engagement will be hosting a campus-wide donation drive for victims directly affected by both hurricanes and possibly the newer hurricanes forming in the Atlantic. Items collected will be made into hygiene kits sent to effected communities both nationally and abroad. Collection items featured below:
These items may be dropped off at the Center for Community Engagement in PSU 131!
UPDATED DROP OFF LOCATIONS: Siceluff 215, Carrington 119 & 201, Temple 142, Kemper Hall 101, Strong 251, 231, & 115, PCEDFE (eFactory), PSU 2nd Floor Lobby, and Foster Recreation Center Lobby! If you want to obtain a donation box or the flyers to hang in your department office, email firstname.lastname@example.org!
If you would rather donate monetarily, you can go to Convoy of Hope‘s website and set up a fundraising page to share with your friends and family! You can also text CONVOY to 50555 to donate $10 to disaster relief.
