Thanks for Giving to Sandy Victims
Over the weekend, students and staff from MCC closed the deal on the delivery of hundreds of articles of clothing and blankets for victims of Hurricane Sandy, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Middlesex Activities Crew mobilized immediately after Hurricane Sandy blew through the Eastern seaboard and began a relief drive on both our campuses two weeks ago.
Last week, they collected piles of gently-used clothing and blankets that were packaged up this weekend and delivered to the Nashua Airport fire station, who helped coordinate a weekend delivery to the hardest hit areas on the New Jersey shore.
The donation drive was capped by a live concert from Cahill in the college's city cafeteria.
Mike Rideout, from the Middlesex Student Activities Crew, said the students especially wanted to coordinate the clothing and blanket donation in time for Thanksgiving, to help the families in need start to piece their lives back together.
"We were thankful just to be able to help, and especially at this time of year, to lend a hand to someone who's never needed one as badly as they do right now, it was really fulfilling for students to know they were maknig a difference," Rideout said.
Great job, everyone! Thanks for stepping up and lending a hand!
