To Our College Community:
The New York Times reported that “five days after Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico, bisecting the entire island, the U.S. territory is in the grips of a serious, life-threatening crisis, with humanitarian aid getting in far more slowly than is needed. The island is running short on food, fuel, and access to clean water and there’s limited communications, which means some communities have received no information about the rescue efforts underway. Among the greatest threats is the continuing lack of power throughout much of the island, after nearly the entire power grid was knocked offline during the storm (about 80 percent of the transmission infrastructure was destroyed)”.
Together we can make a difference. Please take a moment if you would like to consider making a donation to the Red Cross or one of the many other charities offering disaster relief and support for those impacted by these natural disasters.
