Those Suffering from Sandy's Rage Remain Top of Mind

Published on November 8, 2012

Dear Susquehannans,

We are aware that many of you suffered significant losses when Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast last week. We know that large numbers of you live in the areas most affected by the storm, so Sandy’s impact has hit our community hard.Jay Lemons Some of you, still reeling from the effects of Sandy, suffered again this week when a nor’easter hit coastal areas. We are so sorry for the hardships you are experiencing. You remain in our thoughts and prayers.

We are here to support you in any way we can. Please tell us how you’re doing. You can reach us by emailing alumni@susqu.edu, by posting something to www.Facebook.com/SusquehannaU or by sending a tweet to www.twitter.com/SusquehannaU.

Many are wondering what they can do to help. To assist with the recovery efforts, we ask that all Susquehannans consider making a donation to the Red Cross and other aid agencies such as Lutheran Disaster Response. A blood drive was held on campus earlier this week to support those in need, and monetary donations will be collected at a variety of events during Family Weekend, which begins Nov. 9. There are other efforts underway to determine how our community might support the long recovery that is ahead, and we will keep you apprised of any new developments.

Take care, be well and know that we are proud and grateful for those who have offered to help in any way they can during this difficult time for so many members of the Susquehanna family.


L. Jay Lemons
