Supporting Disaster Relief:
SVC faculty, staff, and students reach out to Northern California and Puerto Rico
For many weeks now, we have seen news reports about the devastating natural disasters that continue to impact the lives of many in Northern California and Puerto Rico. Despite the distance, Skagit Valley College students and staff have strong connections to family and friends in both of these regions.
Wildfires in Northern California have burned thousands of acres. These fires have resulted in loss of life, a complete loss of many homes and structures, and a significant number of people and animals displaced. One of the Associated Students of Skagit Valley College representatives grew up in the North Bay and has many family and friends living in that area. They have been in contact and have developed a list of items being requested for shelters in Petaluma, CA.
The hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico will have an impact on that island and the people for the foreseeable future. Puerto Rico has suffered significant loss of life, complete destruction of many homes and other structures, continued loss of power, a shortage of basic supplies and food, and tremendous challenges to move forward.
Many in our college community have expressed concern about these situations and interest in how they can help.
