TRIO collecting supplies for Puerto Rico

A quick update on TRIO’s ongoing Love Puerto Rico Campaign: We were able to ship successfully 6 small boxes with supplies. We have attached a picture of two of our students getting the boxes ready! We have kept in touch with our colleagues there — we have one student who is visiting Puerto Rico right now and will be meeting with the director of the SSS Program, and we are hoping to have a student-to-student Skype session.

We are coming to you to seek your support one more time and create a rainbow for Puerto Rico. We will be collecting supplies on Tuesday, March 13, during our TRIO/Palooza event from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. in Room 122 ATC! Or we can pick up your donations from your offices – or you can drop them by our offices located on the 3rd Floor of the Student Center (Room 332) by March 14th!

Contact Anna Maria Clark at aclark@grcc.edu if you have any questions!

Thank you for all your support and contributions!
