The members of the Greek Community at Stony Brook University request the help of as many individuals as possible in our efforts to aid the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake it has experienced.

If anyone is able to contribute clothing, canned goods, and bottled water it will go a long way towards helping those who were effected by this disaster.

We will be setting up drop boxes in every Residence Hall for people to put clothes/non-perishable items in. If anyone has clothes at home that they wish to donate, please bring them with you when you move back to Stony Brook and drop them off in the drop boxes.

We will also be working side by side with the Caribbean Students Organization and Haitian Students Organization in their relief efforts as well. They will be collecting contributions at these dates and locations:

Sigma Beta Rho aids Haiti

Sigma Beta Rho has teamed up with SOS Children’s Village to aid the unfortunate children who are suffering due to the Haiti disaster.

Please aid us as we collect donations and any other items to help the children in need in Haiti.

SOS Children’s Village (http://www.sos-usa.org) is an organization that builds villages across the globe, with the goal of providing a comfortable, family-oriented place to live for orphaned or abandoned children. The following quote from their website best explains their impact:

“Children who have been abandoned or orphaned come to SOS Children’s Villages where they are integrated into a loving family environment. They are nurtured and supported by an SOS Mother and up to 15 other children in their SOS home who become their SOS brothers and sisters. Strong bonds develop within these ‘SOS families’, and even after the children are grown and leave the village, these family relationships endure.”

THIS IS A SIGMA BETA RHO NATIONAL EFFORT
