Campus continues to aid Katrina victims

The Hornet Bookstore reports that through the generosity of faculty, staff, students and community customers, $1,938 was collected in the bookstore for the Hurricane Relief Fund. The relief initiative, which was part of an overall effort by the Follett Higher Education Group, operator of the Hornet Bookstore, started Sept. 2 and ended Oct. 15.

In total, more than $208,000 was raised in Follett stores with all donations being forwarded to the American Red Cross to help residents of the Gulf Coast states rebuild their homes and lives.

And over the weekend, student and faculty from the University’s Physical Therapy department held a walkathon to benefit the physical therapy program at Louisiana State University. About 40 students walked in McKinley Park with the goal of raising 880.6 dollars—one for each mile between the Sacramento State and LSU campuses. The event was part of countrywide effort in recognition of National Physical Therapy Week.

The LSU program is temporarily operating out of a physical therapy clinic in Baton Rouge after Hurricane Katrina destroyed its teaching hospital and buried the health science building that houses the physical therapy program several feet deep in mud, destroying computers, equipment and books. Checks can be made out to: LSU Health Science Foundation with “Physical Therapy” in the memo, and sent to the Sacramento State Physical Therapy department at mail stop 6020.
