Fundraising for our Global Community

In response to all who have been impacted by recent environmental disasters, the Multicultural Resource Center is fundraising for communities in Texas, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

We tabled last week on Friday, but since some people weren't able to make it, we will be tabling again on:
Septmeber 26, Tuesday 11AM - 1PM
September 28, Thursday 11 AM - 1PM

We will again be collecting monetary (cash and online) donations as well as flashlights, batteries, and first aid to be sent to Puerto Rico.

We will also be selling pins to further help in our efforts (one of many is pictured above!).
