In light of the destruction to the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian, LIU Cares is hosting a hurricane relief drive for the week of Sept. 16-20.

The relief was created in hopes that the campus community, as well as the larger community outside the campus, could come together during this time to donate as many items as possible to help the survivors of Hurricane Dorian, according to Julia Pagano, associate director of Promise. In the Bahamas, a number of homes and businesses were destroyed and much of the land itself was completely submerged beneath the ocean’s waves.

Members of the LIU Cares program handed out a list of items that different relief centers have requested in order to give whatever aid they can to the hurricane victims. Students can pick up a copy of the list at the Campus Concierge.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 23, LIU Cares will hold a drive to collect these items. Students interested in more information can anticipate social media posts and flyers about the event. Residential assistants will also inform students about the relief.
