In the Wake of “Super Storm” Sandy…
A MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOE BERTOLINO
October 31, 2012
While we are grateful that most of Vermont was spared the worst effects of “super storm” Sandy, our thoughts go out to those in our state and elsewhere in the northeast who suffered at the hands of this ferocious storm. Vermont’s experience last year with Tropical Storm Irene reminds us of the importance of community action in healing and helping in the wake of a weather event like this.
We urge members of our community to be involved in whatever way they can to aid those affected. Jonathan Ross, Lyndon’s community service coordinator, is identifying opportunities for us to roll up our sleeves and get involved. Contact Jonathan at ServiceLearning@lyndonstate.edu or 802-626-6330. We will also be posting notices on the College’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/LyndonState.
Non-perishable foods are being collected in the Student Life Office on the first floor of the Rita Bole Complex though the end of this week and will be shipped to areas most in need.
The American Red Cross is also accepting donations at redcross.org/hurricane-sandy.
