Dollars for Disaster

Dollars for Disaster is a as needed basis initiative started by a group of WVU students in 2005 as a response to the Indonesian Tsunami. The initiative has since collected monetary and supply donations for Hurricane Katrina, Southern West Virginia floods, and most recently the Haitian earthquake. During each campaign, the CS&L coordinates the campus-wide initiative and compiles all events and serves as a clearing house for relief efforts.

Donors are encouraged to contribute cash. In-kind donations require sorting, boxing, palletizing, storage, and delivery to the disaster location. All of these activities can be costly and time consuming, and t herefore may delay service delivery. Cash donations allow vetted organizations to purchase product to quickly and efficiently meet the most urgent needs of disaster victims. When possible, the purchases are made near the disaster site to stimulate the local economy and ensure quicker delivery.
