UCA Students Assist Tornado Victims

UCA students, faculty and staff have been assisting with clean-up efforts for victims of tornadoes that struck Arkansas on February 5. An initial group of 20 individuals went to Clinton, Arkansas on February 9 to assist with clean-up. The following Saturday, February 16, another 50 to 60 individuals went to Clinton to work in a relief center.

These efforts were coordinated by Wendy Holbrook, Charlotte Strickland, Heather Harmon-Murphy and Julie Bernard from the Office of Student Life, in cooperation with Bit Stephens from the Baptist Collegiate Ministry. Other UCA affiliated groups have organized donation drives and clean-up efforts for Atkins, Arkansas and other parts of the state.

Student Life and Baptist Collegiate Ministry is planning another trip to Mountain View in Stone County for Saturday, February 23. Individuals interested in participating can sign up in room 207 Student Center. Transportation and food will be provided. Participants will depart from the Reynolds Hall parking lot at 9:00 a.m., and will return around 6:00 p.m. For further information, please call 450-3137.
