St. Mary’s College of Maryland students have initiated a disaster relief effort to collect non-perishable items to aid students and their families devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Alumnus Jamie Gilman ‘06 in southeastern Texas has helped coordinate with the Pasadena Independent School District. Alumnus Jack Saum Jr. ’89, president and CEO of Beltway Companies, has donated a truck and driver to make the delivery.
Items may be dropped off on September 22 and 23, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics and Recreation Center at the St. Mary's College of Maryland campus. Monetary donations can be made at www.smcm.edu/cares-harvey.
