Community Service organizing Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Hurricane Harvey, the strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. since Charley in 2004, has caused catastrophic flooding in Texas. As a result, the Office of Community Service has organized an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to help those affected by the storm.

Members of the University community are encouraged to donate diapers, wipes, bottles or unused baby/children’s clothing and blankets, which will be sent to the Texas Diaper Bank.

Monetary donations will also be accepted to cover the cost of shipping these items to the Texas Diaper Bank. Checks should be made payable to Salve Regina University with “Harvey” in the memo. Please note that these donations are not tax deductible.

Donation boxes are located in the Mercy Center, the Office of Community Service and residence halls. Donations will be accepted through Friday, Sept. 15.

For more information, contact the Office of Community Service at (401) 341-2440 or community.services@salve.edu.
