The Association of Quark Students (AQS) is collecting new and gently used footwear to be sent to Haiti as part of their disaster-relief efforts. Blue barrels have been placed in a variety of locations if you would like to contribute to this cause. The barrels are located in:
- Hanner Hall, east entrance
- Health Sciences, south entrance
- Student Union outside of SUB 161
- Bore Hall in main lobby
The AQS hopes to collect at least 100 pairs of shoes and/or sandals. Keep in mind this is Haiti, so you’re old insulated mountain boots probably won’t be of much use. Wearing shoes is a basic method of preventing the spread of communicable disease in an earthquake-ravaged country, so please take the time to poke through your closet and donate what you can.
