A Quarter 'n' Up: SGA's Hurricane
Relief Effort Begins Tonight
The Student Government
Association announced a relief effort today called A Quarter 'n' Up to collect
quarters and other spare change to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Coins will be collected beginning
at tonight's football game (,
Snow Stadium), and collections will continue at other games and campus events of
all kinds through October 1. SGA senators and others will be on hand with
specially marked collection containers. Fans will have opportunities to
contribute as they enter the stadium and throughout the game.
If only 5,000 students each gave
two quarters, the SGA would be able to raise $2,500 for the project.
The SGA is working to establish
other collection points around campus as well. Donations may be made anywhere
you see the special container or an SGA representative. Students and employees
may also drop by the SGA office, Room 402 Montgomery Building, to make donations
SGA President Mardracus Russell
said funds will be turned over to the American Red Cross and earmarked for
Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
The SGA is planning further
projects, including a collection point for specific relief items such as food
In addition to these efforts, the
Anniston Star and SGA will be collecting items at tonight's game for delivery to
victims. See related story at www.jsu.edu/news.
