Dear Members of the CU Boulder Community,
Our thoughts are with all the people, and especially our fellow Buffs, from the Gulf Coast area affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Our campus offers a safety net for students, faculty, and staff in times of distress, and we encourage anyone in need to seek campus resources. Available services include Counseling and Psychiatric Services, Student Support and Case Management, the Office of Victim Assistance, Student Legal Services and the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program to name a few.
Many are wondering what they can do to support from Colorado. Before you donate physical items, please review this article, "When disaster relief brings anything but relief." As our mission states, "through an educational framework of equity and inclusion, we develop socially responsible student leaders who understand, advocate for, and provide services to meet campus and community needs," it is important that those who wish to help, listen to the affected communities and send help in the ways that communities in and around Houston, are asking for help. We are working on a list of ways you can donate directly to organizations who are supporting recovery efforts. Check back this week for more information on what the Volunteer Resource Center and CU Boulder will be doing to collect and send needed supplies.
If you are interested in helping with relief efforts through the Volunteer Resource Center sign up below.
Please forward to anyone interested in helping. We are here to meet with and talk with students about how to lend a helping hand.
The Volunteer Resource Center Staff
