SWOSU Students to Help Nepal Earthquake Victims

SWOSU Students
This group of SWOSU students is holding, blankets, gloves, flashlights, Band-Aids and  vitamins—all things that they are collecting by Wednesday to send to Nepal.

An effort by Southwestern Oklahoma State University students is underway to help earthquake victims in Nepal.

The SWOSU group has set up boxes in the lobby of Stafford Center and outside the cafeteria in the Memorial Student Center on the Weatherford campus.  A medical team is leaving Thursday from Dallas so items are needed by Wednesday at 12 noon.

Samjhana Kunwar, one of several students at SWOSU from Nepal, said these supplies are needed: tents, blankets, torches with batteries, sanitizers, water purifiers, first-aid kits, advil, band aids, granola bars, Protein bars, masks and gloves, for example.

Area residents  can also donate online to various organizations—American Red Cross, Global Giving and The World Food Programme, for example—that are helping for the Nepal Earthquake Relief.
