Alvernia Helping Haiti
As the tragedy in Haiti continues to unfold, Alvernia students are taking 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.
Join Alvernia as we help those affected by the tragedy in Haiti. As part of Phase I, Alvernia raised over $3000 for the people of Haiti and Phase II brought in donations of food, clothing and bedding, but now it is time for Phase III!
This year for the Student Government Association's annual Spring Fling event, Haiti is being put in the forefront. All ticket sales for the main event, comedian BJ Novak, will be sent to Mercy Corps (Cash donations also being excepted). Get your tickets now at www.alverniatickets.com or in the Office of Student Activities!
Phase I Fundraising kicked off at the Martin Luther King Day
Celebration on January 19 and continued until January 26. Alvernia
students, faculty and staff teamed up to raise over $3000 for the
people of Haiti. All donations were sent to Mercy Cops to help with
their efforts in Haiti.
On January 21st Alvernia held Sundaes for Change for Haiti in the Crusader Café and sold sundaes for spare change to raise funds for Haiti.
On Tuesday, January 26th Campus Ministry and Student Government Association prepared a Prayer Vigil for fellow students, staff and faculty. In a moving piece, Alvernia student Courtney Renshaw spoke of her experience in Haiti during the earthquake.
Phase II consisted of items being collected to be donated to Haiti. Items ranging from non-perishable foods to first aid supplies and even toys, such as art supplies were collected until February 26th.
