Relief drive for East Coast storm victims under way at Owens Community College

OWENS COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Owens Community College students are reaching out to the victims of the hurricane that has devastated the East Coast by organizing a Disaster Relief Supply Drive on the Perrysburg Township campus. It runs through Tuesday.

The supply drive efforts are being coordinating by Owens’ Honors Club.

Items being collected include bottled water, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, mops, brooms, shovels, snow shovels, rakes, box fans, flashlights, batteries, shop vacuums, canned and non-perishable food items, personal care items, baby care items, first aid supplies and pet supplies, among other items.

Area residents can drop off their charitable donations at the College Hall Atrium, the Student Health and Activities Center, the Library and Founders Hall. The college is on Oregon Road.

The collected items will be donated to the ISOH/IMPACT, a local relief organization, which will get the items distributed to the East Coast.

For more information, or to make a donation, call 567-429-3029 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, ext. 3029.
