Nov. 13, 2012

The damage from Hurricane Sandy has been felt throughout the East Coast.  The storm has ruined homes and cost billions of dollars in damages.  Several students at Siena College have also been from the destruction of Sandy.

Over 80 Siena students have reported damage to their houses, some are beyond repair.  As a method to helps those students, Siena College, the Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy, and several other clubs and organizations on campus have formed the fundraising group called Saints for Sandy.  All the money raised from their efforts will go directly to those students who have been affected by the storm.

People wishing to make a donation can write a check to Franciscan Center for Service and Advocacy or the American Red Cross with the words "Saints for Sandy" in the MEMO line.
