Florida A&M University (FAMU) President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., the FAMU College of Law, FAMU Student Bar Association, the School of Allied Health, the Division of Student Affairs, Student Health Services and the Student Government Association are all volunteering and securing generous donations for the “FAMU CARES” Hurricane Michael Relief Drive. Today, at 3 p.m., a van packed by the President and students, faculty and staff at the College of Law in Orlando will arrive at FAMU’s Department of Safety and Security with non-perishable food items and toiletries, and care items for infants and toddlers. Students from Allied Health, SGA, the Marching “100” and staff from Student Affairs, FAMUPD, and Health Services will be on site to collect donations from the community and campus and prepare items for delivery for those affected by Hurricane Michael. The FAMU Football team supported relief efforts in Marianna and Havanna this past weekend.
President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., is on site at the College of Law this morning assisting with the preparation of the van. Community members are asked to come out at 3 p.m., to FAMU’s main campus (Police Department) to assist with donations.
The FAMU main campus and all satellite campuses maintained full power throughout the storm. Special services, including shelters, food services, campus transportation, expanded library hours, showers in facilities on campus and other amenities, were provided at the main campus. The University also provided shelter to first responders and utility workers who came to Tallahassee to work in the areas receiving the most damage. To assist students, faculty and staff still experiencing challenges, the public and community partners are asked to participate in the “FAMU CARES” Hurricane Michael Relief Drive.
