LVC Ships 500 Pounds of Clothing to Aid Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

ANNVILLE, Pa. - In an effort to help aid those affected by the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, Lebanon Valley College held a clothing drive during the season-opening football game on Saturday afternoon, Sept 2.

Through the generosity of those affiliated with the College and local community members from the surrounding area, nearly 700 pounds of clothing was collected. Those attending the football game donated articles of clothing that included outerwear, socks, shoes, and anything else that could be shipped, for donation to those most affected by Hurricane Harvey, particularly in Houston and the surrounding areas.

"We are so grateful to all those who donated clothing for those affected by Hurricane Harvey," said LVC women's basketball head coach Amy Sokaitis regarding the drive's success. "So many people from LVC and our surrounding communities answered the call and their generosity will go a long way towards aiding those who need it most."

Sokaitis added that 500 pounds of clothing was sent directly to Texas to benefit those most directly affected by Hurricane Harvey. The remaining nearly 200 pounds of clothing was shipped to a local Salvation Army.
