Disaster Relief: Hurricane Harvey and Irma -
The disastrous path left by Hurricane Harvey in southeast Texas has caused "catastrophic" and historic flooding that has left countless homes and businesses destroyed, at least 14 people are feared dead and many more stranded as they attempt to escape the dangerous conditions.Though it was downgraded to a tropical storm Saturday afternoon as it moved inland, the effect of Hurricane Harvey has left about 300,000 people without power as water floods the streets, creating eerie images of highways that now appear more like rivers than roads.
Large parts of Florida remain at risk from potentially life-threatening storm surges after Hurricane Irma tore a devastating path through the state, with roof-ripping winds and gushing floodwaters leaving millions without power.
The current situation is dire for many folks and they will need food. Please consider making a donation to the Lehman L.I.F.E. program in support of Hurricane Harvey Relief. Donations will be sent to the Greater Houston and Corpus Christi Food Banks and a local organization with the greatest need in FL. After September 30th, 2017 any donations made to the Lehman L.I.F.E. Hurricane Harvey relief fund will help to support students who will travel to Texas during spring break to support the rebuilding efforts in Houston and Corpus Christi area.
If you are interested in volunteering with hurricane relief during spring break, please attend one of the Lehman L.I.F.E. Information Sessions at the Office of Community Engagement in the Old Gym, Room 302 from October 2nd - October 6th, 2018. Info sessions will be held daily at 10AM and 2PM. There, you will receive information on the application process for Lehman L.I.F.E.
