Sophia McCleaf, DUS Coordinator & ASR here at PSMA, was deeply moved by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. After reflection, she acted — facilitating local relief efforts for a community far away. When asked about her efforts, Sophia offered:
In my heart, I had to do something to help those who were affected by the destructive path of Hurricane Harvey. I knew others wanted to donate items to individuals who needed help, so that is when I decided to spread the word to the Penn State Mont Alto community about the donation site in Chambersburg, PA. Staff and faculty started to drop off items at my office – these items included: baby diapers, reading books, water, lotion, toothpaste, shampoo, etc.
This was about communities coming together to help those in need and that is what we did.
We are…one community helping another community in a time of need.
