Back from Break, CCC Gathers Tsunami Aid

DATE: 03-03-2005

Although the Asian tsunami of December 26 occurred while Cayuga Community College was closed for the holidays, and classes didn?t resume until nearly a month later, the college community still wanted to do its part to help.

Several student clubs contributed their time and fund-raising proceeds, including UNITED, Phi Beta Lambda, the Early Childhood Club, and the Fulton Literary Club. As of the end of February, campus collections totaled $1,152 for the Tsunami Relief Fund of the International Red Cross. This amount was in addition to donations that college students, faculty, and staff had already given for tsunami relief in the days immediately following the disaster.
