Manhattanville Cross Country Teams to Sponsor Flood Relief Drive
Thursday, 15 September 2011 15:26

Purchase, NY The Manhattanville Cross Country teams are joining with the Duchesne Center to co-sponsor the Flood Relief Project to help aid those in select Vermont cities affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.

While most items are necessary to help in the clean-up effort the following items are in highest demand: paper towels, disinfectant wipes, sponges, scrub brushes, brooms and dust pans and garbage bags. All materials will be sent to the Vermont Red Cross to help citizens in Rutland and Wilmington, VT.

Materials can be dropped off on campus at the Athletics office and the Duchesne Center, as well at the Valiants Invitational on Saturday, September 17 at 9 a.m. The team is also holding a "spare change" drive during the Invitational to collect money for local Red Cross organizations in the affected areas.

For more information contact Mike Owens, cross country coach at owensm@mville.edu or 914-323-7286, or Wil Tyrrell, Duchesne Center Director at wil.tyrrell@mville.edu or 914-323-7178.
