Hurricane Sandy

Interested in helping survivors of Hurricane Sandy?


The Alternative Spring Break teams are organizing a drive.

Here’s a list of things that are needed: Drop off at the Civic Engagement Office, 203 Henry Student Center:

Chapstick, baby wipes, flashlights, baby food, batteries, baby supplies (diapers, bottles, etc.), pet food, garbage bags, water, bleach, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, mops, rubber gloves, toiletries        



Want to help more?

Give Blood: Wilkes Blood Drive is November 28th- Register at http://www.redcrossblood.org/

Cash Contributions- Drop off at the Civic Engagement Office, 203 Henry Student Center- checks made out to Wilkes University

Donate! Feed the Hungry, Red Cross, and Salvation Army are a few organizations.


A word of caution:

Don’t Send Unsolicited Donations                            

Volunteer: Be Safe! Be Patient! We are working to create volunteer weekends. At this point many of the hard hit areas are without basic necessities. Sending in volunteers at a time like this is taxing on resources better used on Sandy survivors at this time.


Please let us know if you are interested in forming a weekend Army of Colonels Cleaning Crew: we will begin the process of strategic Disaster Recovery. Contact Megan.boone@wilkes.edu with your interest.
