Mason’s Graduate Student Sociological Association has organized a donation drive to help victims of last week’s devastating tornado damage in Alabama. The tornados wreaked havoc on the lives and homes of countless people and affected the friends and families of members of the Mason community.

According to Sandra Scherrens, vice president for University Life, Mason has about 30 students from Alabama.

Items may be dropped off at the Women and Gender Studies Center, Johnson Center, Room 240K.

Donations being accepted through the end of this week include:

  • Diapers
  • Toiletries
  • Slightly used and new clothing for all ages
  • Shoes
  • Towels
  • Blankets
  • Boxes and tape (to package up donations)
