Hurricane Relief - UPDATE
Urbana University Coordination Efforts Update
for Hurricane Maria Victims in Puerto Rico
Urbana University Student Athletic Advisory Committee and the Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund continue coordinating the collection of items to help people impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
The “Hurricane Relief” effort is a county wide project with the coordination and cooperation of the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce, the City of Urbana, and the Champaign County Library. Donations of clothing, toiletries, non-perishable food, and water may be dropped off at following locations October 16th – 20th.
Urbana University Student Center Monday – Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Champaign County Library Monday-Thursday 9am-8pm and Friday, 9am-5pm.
Champaign County Chamber of Commerce Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Due to the overwhelming response in donations moving through the Red Cross we were encouraged to send all donated items to the United Way Collection Center in Miami, Florida. The items will then be sent to Puerto Rico. The transportation of these items to Miami and Puerto Rico will be through a cooperative effort by local companies and organizations wishing to help those in need!!!
