 Hurricane Katrina Relief: How We Are Helping
by Director of Alumni Relations Marggi Roldan

---------------------------------------------------------
 
 


At Sherman College, we are all profoundly saddened by the devastation Hurricane Katrina has caused. To assist those affected, including our own alumni and student families, we have several programs in place.

For Our Alumni
We ask that Sherman College alumni affected by Hurricane Katrina check in with the Alumni Office so we may verify your safety and make you aware of assistance available to you. Please contact us at 1-800-849-8771, ext. 277, or email the Alumni Office at mroldan@sherman.edu.

We have established the Sherman College Hurricane Relief Fund to make it possible for Sherman College employees to assist alumni affected by this disaster. We are accepting donations from employees and will distribute those donations directly to alumni who have incurred major hardships.

How the Sherman College Family is Helping
To help with general relief efforts for the Gulf Coast Region, the Sherman College Student Affairs Office has collected water, clothing and non-perishable foods to send to Hurricane Katrina survivors. We have also provided relief efforts and activity information to the college community and encouraged donations to the American Red Cross.
