Armstrong Supports Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts
(Nov. 10, 2012) Armstrong has partnered with Savannah Responds to collect donations in support of relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast. Savannah Responds, founded over 30 years ago, coordinates distribution of supplies and volunteers to assist communities in the wake of disasters.
Armstrong has a strong tradition of helping those in need, and to that end, students, faculty and staff have mobilized to collect items identified as crucial to the stricken areas—bottled water, peanut butter, hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes.
“Hurricane Sandy has impacted the lives of many men, women and children, including many college students,” said Kwame J. Phillips, president of Armstrong's Student Government Association. “It is important for our student body to have a heart and support the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, because when we build up another community after a massive storm we also build up our community. Every item we give helps to ensure a brighter day for individuals impacted by the storm.”
Donations will be accepted through Nov. 19, and drop-off boxes have been set up in the following locations:
Student Union, first floor lobby
University Police (open 24 hours)
Armstrong Center lobby
University Hall lobby
Science Center, College of Science & Technology dean's office
Compass Point club house
Ashmore Hall, outside of room 119
Solms Hall, College of Liberal Arts dean's office
Burnett Hall, room 155 (alumni office)
Donations are also being collected at Liberty Center.
