On Tuesday, 19 September 2017, the beautiful island of Dominica was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The category five disaster containing sustained winds of over 160 mph destroyed homes, agriculture, flora, fauna, and claimed the lives of over 20 individuals with 15 persons still missing. To help, the Nature Island Donation Drive was started and has partnered with local organizations on campus to help the people of Dominica, and we're appealing to our fellow Glendonites to step in and help out in any way that they can by dropping off the following supplies at designated boxes at either the GCSU office or in either of the two residences on campus.  

     The people of Dominica urgently need supplies such as food and water of any kind; from crackers and biscuits to water purification tablets. Health items are also sorely needed. As of right now, electricity and water structures on the island have been impacted and are not running, alongside that Dominica is still reeling from the effects of Tropical Storm Erica just two years ago. Medical supplies; first aid kits; clothing; books; school supplies, especially textbooks; and solar lamps are sorely needed. The Drive also hopes to achieve $5,000 to help repair the roof at St. Martin Secondary School. For more information, contact us at shaniakj@gmail.com.

 

Thank you Glendon!
