Colorado State Cares: Support for disaster relief in Haiti

January 14, 2010

Massive international relief efforts are underway in the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti. At this point, it's being reported that the most critically needed aid is financial, and a number of organizations are mobilizing to receive donations for Haitian relief.

A message from CSU President Tony Frank

“The entire Colorado State University community joins with people and countries worldwide in offering our deepest sympathies and support to the people of Haiti and all those around the world whose lives have been transformed by this monumental disaster.

"Our hearts and thoughts are with the Haitians and the relief workers as they struggle to ease the suffering of a nation, and we urge all in our community to do what they can -- whether through donations, service, or prayer -- to support the global response.”
