Moravian College Organizing Honduras Relief Effort

Moravian College is organizing a relief effort to help ease the suffering of those who fell victim to Hurricane Mitch in Honduras. The Latin American Culture class, the Spanish Club, and the Multicultural Club have been joined by fraternities and sororities of Moravian College to organize a drive for food, summer clothing and blankets to be delivered on behalf of Moravian College to the victims of Hurricane Mitch in Central America.

The collection will be on Wednesday, November 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. A collection box will be placed in the Haupert Union Building (HUB) across the HUB Help Desk. Moravian College faculty member Mildred Rivera-Martinez initiated the effort after receiving a letter from a friend involved in the relief effort that described the horrific situation in Honduras.

Moravian students, faculty and staff are seeking donations of summer clothing, children’s clothing, blankets, towels, bed sheets and canned food. Those wishing to give cash donations are being directed to the Moravian Church's relief efforts. Donations can be sent to Hampton Morgan at the Board of World Mission, Box 1245 and Bethlehem, PA 18016-1245. Make the check out to the Board of World Mission and designate it to "Hurricanes 1998." If you have any questions please call Rev. J. Christian Gisela, Chaplain of Moravian College at (610) 861-1411.
