Oklahoma Panhandle State University President Dave Bryant presented a $5,000 check today on behalf of OPSU to the Plains Chapter of the American Red Cross to be used to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina. “We wanted to provide immediate help to those in need, and our Student Senate has also picked up the challenge. At last night’s meeting, a motion was passed by our student leaders to organize and implement additional relief efforts by mobilizing our student body,” Bryant said.

Lori Sanders, Secretary of the Plains Chapter, said, “Thank you on behalf of the American Red Cross. This donation will pass directly to Hurricane Katrina relief, and will be put to use immediately.” She went on to say that 10 volunteers from the Oklahoma Panhandle are currently training to certify for hands-on relief assistance. Two others have completed training, and the volunteers will be called to the devastated area to provide assistance under hardship conditions.

More help is needed. For more information, please contact the Plains Chapter of the American Red Cross at 580-338-6746.
