Mount Union College to Hold Campus-Wide Meeting for Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts

April 22, 2010

The College will be holding a campus-wide meeting on Thursday, September 22 at 8 p.m. in the Campus Grounds, to organize relief efforts. The meeting is open to the entire College community.


The meeting will focus on discussing what is happening and how the College community can get involved.

Volunteers will be needed to help collect donations at home football games and possibly at Alliance high school games as well.

In addition, there are plans to invite Red Cross to campus for the training of volunteers in emergency procedures. Volunteers will be required to attend two classroom style meetings and one simulation experience over a time period of 7-10 days.

These volunteers will then be permitted to aid in relief efforts in Louisiana. There are plans for organized groups to travel during the winter and spring breaks to aid in the clean up and rebuilding in the region. More news about the possibility of having the Red Cross come to campus will be discussed at the meeting.

Other topics to be discussed include, staffing for Cedar Point on Halloween weekend, Greek Week Clothing Drive, Sophomore Service Trick or Treat for Hurricane victims through UNICEF, flood buckets and health kit efforts and more.

Mount Union will welcome any new ideas and efforts to help with the relief.

For more information, contact Rev. Marty CashBurless, the College chaplain at (330) 823-2838.
