JSU Tsunami Relief
13 January, 2005 — A group representing the University, SGA, the
International House, the Wesley Foundation, and BCM met on Tuesday to formulate a plan of action. We are challenging the
80 organizations on our campus to give $1.00 per active member to this cause. In addition to this, we also will provide
donation boxes on campus and around the community where students can give on January 25 and 26.
We have set a goal of raising $10,000. The first $2,000 to $2,500 will be used to purchase a water purification pump
to be taken to a village by Disaster Relief Teams from the Alabama Baptist Convention. All other proceeds will be
donated through the American Red Cross.
On Monday, January 31, at 6:00 p.m., our efforts will conclude with the presentation of a check for the total of funds
collected. This will take place at the SGA Senate Meeting at the Theron Montgomery Building. Donations can be sent to:
Checks can be made to BCM with a notation for Tsunami Relief. Funds will be combined and forwarded to the relief groups
