Following the earthquake in Haiti, a group of ULV faculty, administrators and staff formed a group, the Haiti Relief Committee. This committee asks people to donate at least $10 for a hygiene kit, which includes daily toiletries needed by Haitians. Please make all checks to “University of La Verne” and drop it off at the front desk of the Campus Center by March 19. An event to raise additional money will take place at 2 p.m. on March 29 in the Campus Center. The committee is exploring different ways to make this committment a long-term one. For more information, e-mail Debbie Roberts, campus minister, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
