As the tragedy in Haiti continues to unfold, Alvernia students are beginning to take action to help the victims devastated by the earthquake. The Student Government Association, Campus Ministry, and the Office of Student Activities have teamed up to help support the victims.

How you can help:

Fundraising kicked off at the Martin Luther King Day Celebration on January 19 and will continue until January 26. Please look around campus for students that are carrying silver cans. Also, if you would like to send a donation please send it to Father Kevin Queally in Campus Ministry. All donations will be sent to Mercy Corps to help with their efforts in Haiti.

Thursday, January 21st: Sundaes for Change for Haiti (5-7pm) in the Crusader Café
Bring your loose change to make a sundae, and make a change for Haiti!
 
Tuesday, January 26, 2010: join us for a prayer vigil (2:30pm)
 
If you have any suggestions for other fundraisers or for events to raise awareness of the disaster, please do not hesitate to contact Emily Berret, SGA President at Emily.Berret@alvernia.edu.
 
"It is a tragedy that defies expression; a tragedy that compels all people to the highest levels of human compassion and solidarity."
