Students Collect Donations For Flood Relief
Posted October 14, 2009 | Atlanta, GA
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.
