In late October, Hurricane Sandy ravaged much of the East Coast, with the coastlines of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut hit especially hard. While we in Vermont, and at the College, prepared for the worst, we were relieved to escape a direct hit. Despite our own good fortune, many of us have family and friends who are struggling to cope with incredible destruction.
Once again, we find ourselves coming together as a community to determine how we can respond. The following resources may be useful. As our colleagues and student organization leaders learn more about concrete ways we can take action, we will continue to provide updates, accordingly, at this website.
As we’ve been advised in recent years during other disasters, we need to provide time for trained emergency responders to address the most immediate needs. We can, however, provide monetary donations and other forms of support. Here are links to organizations that are helping with disaster relief in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
