Athletic Program Sponsors Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort
Nov. 1: St. Lawrence University's athletic department is pitching in to help provide relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy on Long Island.
A clothing drive and fundraiser will be held throughout the weekend and into next week with the clothing provided and monetary proceeds being delivered to the Red Cross on Long Island when the Saint football team travels to Kings Point Nov. 10 to play its annual Hoffmann Cup game against the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
Drop boxes for well-kept folded clothing, identified as a priority item by the Red Cross, will be located the Augsbury Gymnasium lobby, the Newell Field House lobby near the fitness center and in the Appleton Arena lobby. Donation stations for monetary contributions will also be set up in Augsbury for Friday's Homecoming pep rally and at Appleton Arena for the hockey games Friday and Saturday night.Donations will also be accepted at Saturday's football game against Hobart.
Financial donations may also be dropped off at the office of quarterbacks coach Tom Blumenauer at any time prior to the team's Nov. 9 departure for Long Island.
