Collegewide initiative to help state’s Haiti relief efforts
The initiative is part of the college’s overall Dollars for Haiti recovery effort. Beginning March 16, donations can be made through the college’s business offices on each campus. A logo has been designed and a sticker will be given to those who donate.
“Dollars for Haiti is a collegewide initiative proposed by the students, approved by the faculty and staff, and the President’s Cabinet,” said Tonjua Williams, Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. “These funds will be donated to the governor’s Haiti Relief Fund in the name of St. Petersburg College.”
The college’s fund drive will feed into the state relief effort, known as “Neighbors to the Rescue,” which was activated by Gov. Charlie Crist as a part of the Florida Disaster Recovery Fund. This fund will provide long-term recovery funding to assist with relocation expenses, and employment expenses such as job training and placement, among other things.
“We’ll have a Web site designed; but the process and the account numbers and all that are already in place,” she said.
