SCC students are raising money to help the people of Japan affected by the tsunami and earthquake(s) of last month. The students have worked hard to plan and coordinate efforts as well as recruit volunteers to work at donation booths both on- and off campus. More than 40 students volunteered their time working at donation booths at different locations throughout the Seattle area last weekend. This week, students and other volunteers continue their efforts here on campus. If you would like to make a cash donation, you can do so any day this week. Volunteers will be accepting cash donations in the PUB foyer all week from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30p.m. Receipts will be given to all who make donations.
Volunteers are still needed at the donation table. Volunteer times are scheduled for one hour increments: 10:30-11:30am, 11:30am – 12:30pm, and 12:30 – 1:30pm. Please contact Kanpong Thaweesuk at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping out.
A slideshow with images of the impact of the tsunami and earthquakes will be shown in the Main Dining Room of the PUB on 10-minute intervals beginning at noon on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and at 11 a.m. on Tuesday and Friday.
Students are also discussing a music charity to be held on campus in May. Information will be released in Day at a Glance and Week Ahead as details are confirmed.
The money raised will be donated to the Japan Red Cross via an account with the Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation. Donations will be distributed to those in need by the governor of the Miyagi Prefecture (where the most damage was done).
