Students Collect Donations For Flood Relief

The Georgia Tech Student Government Association, MOVE (Mobilizing Opportunities for Volunteer Experience) Georgia Tech, The President's Council Governing Board, and the American Red Cross are collecting non-perishable food, clothes and money to assist victims of Georgia's recent floods.

Students, faculty and staff may drop off donations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Thursday and Friday on Skiles Walkway. Donations may also be made before Mock Rock on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Ferst Center for the Arts and before the Ramblin' Reck Parade this Saturday at 8 a.m.

Students wanted to assist with flood relief when they learned that fellow Yellow Jackets were affected by the disaster. "When we heard Governor [Sonny] Perdue give the estimate for damage at $500 million, we quickly realized we had an obligation to do our part," said Undergraduate Student Government member Corey Boone.
