Two hurricanes have occurred in recent news and have affected lives around the whole globe. Hurricane Harvey, an extremely destructive Atlantic hurricane, affected the states of Texas and Louisiana heavily throughout the end of August. Hurricane Irma, the most intense Atlantic hurricane to strike the United States in over a decade, affected the Caribbean and the state of Florida heavily throughout the beginning of September.
Student Lauren Collier reached out on the WC app, asking “if people can hold my family and friends in the light…in Florida right now as Irma is slowly approaching.” Lauren was not the only WC student with family and friends in Florida.
“All of the proceeds will be going to the Salvation Army to assist the hurricane Harvey and Irma victims.”
On September 29 at 5:30, a Volleyball Tourney for Hurricane Relief will be happening at the sand volleyball courts. It will be $5 per person to play and 6 people will be needed for a team. The winning team will receive a “College Swag” bag. Alyssa Rogers, Local Chair on the Service Leaders Executive Board, has put together the event.
“All of the proceeds will be going to the Salvation Army to assist the hurricane Harvey and Irma victims,” as posted in the app description.
All thoughts, prayers, and help will continue to go out from the Witness to those who have suffered from the hurricanes.
