and faculty at Sacramento State have joined the relief effort to assist victims
of Hurricane Katrina.
Like people across the nation, we at Sacramento State are shocked and saddened
by the images of suffering in New Orleans and other areas affected by the hurricane. We're
working to do our part by reaching out and assisting the victims. I encourage
everyone in the campus community to do what they can to help. Sacramento State
President Alexander Gonzalez.
The California Faculty Association is accepting donations for the Red Cross.
Checks made payable to the Red Cross or the Union Community Fund can be dropped
off at the CFA office in Brighton Hall Room 106. For more information, contact
the association at (916) 278-6196.
Several student groups are banding together to raise funds for the Red Cross
as well. A “Five for Life” coin drive is underway with participants
being asked to give in quantities of five: five cents, five dollars, $50, etc.
And student body president Angel Barajas plans to issue a fundraising challenge
to the student body presidents at the other California State University campuses.
Students will be collecting the funds during Welcome Week activities this week
on campus and at other events during the semester. Contributions, made out to
the American Red Cross, can also be dropped off at the Students Activities office
on the second floor of the University Union. For more information, call Student
Activities at (916) 278-6595.
