RPI Relief: Hurricane Sandy
On October 29, 2012, one of the most powerful hurricanes in American history came ashore along almost 1,000 miles of the United States eastern seaboard, carving a path of destruction from North Carolina to Massachusetts, with the eye on the Jersey Shore.
RPI RELIEF: Hurricane Sandy efforts are now being coordinated. A website has been created that will compile and report on all the initiatives, including fundraising, to support students whose families are impacted by the storm, and a possible spring break trip to assist in the recovery effort. Fundraising is being coordinated largely in support of the American Red Cross, except where otherwise noted. The fundraising campaign will run throughout the fall semester, and the Rensselaer Community's donations will be sent to the American Red Cross when classes end.
The list of RPI Relief: Hurricane Sandy events and programs at Rensselaer will be updated as are known – so please feel free to bookmark the website and check back often.
