Ferris Gets Involved In Relief Effort After Haitian Earthquake

BIG RAPIDS - The pain of the devastating earthquake that recently occurred in Haiti has had a ripple effect across the world - well beyond the borders of Haiti.
One of our neighbors in the world, Haiti, needs our help in its greatest time of need as tens of thousands of people have died and more many more continue to suffer.

Individual people can make a difference in the world - right here at Ferris State University. The office of Dr. Daniel Burcham, vice president of Student Affairs at Ferris is emphasizing a message that individual people can make a difference. The vice president's office has initiated the Ferris State University Haitian Earthquake Disaster Relief Effort. People are being asked to donate, if at all possible, to support earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

As of right now, only monetary donations are being sought.

Donations for the Haiti earthquake relief effort may be submitted to the Vice President of Student Affairs office in CSS 313B, the Timme Center for Student Services.

Checks sent to the office should be made payable to the American Red Cross with a designation for the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund.
