How You Can Help Us

I've been talking with my PLN about the horrendous tragedies the recent weather has inflected upon our faculty and family community and I want to post this to have as a resource for those discussions. My school's Director, Vince Durnan, is a man I completely respect and admire, and I know that recent events have presented difficult challenges to his administrative expertise. Imagine that you're the head of a community of families of very many configurations supporting 1017 students. Here's what he sent out today:

Friends,

As we find ourselves at the end of a very long week, I want to take a moment to reflect upon and summarize some important information:

1. Our students, faculty and staff continue to work towards helping those most affected in the USN community and beyond. Find out more about their plans. Additional volunteers are always welcome.

2. The USNA continues to sponsor a USN Fund for Flood Relief to offer assistance to those who have lost their homes. Monetary contributions (mailed to 2000 Edgehill Ave., Nashville, TN 37212 with checks payable to the USN Fund for Flood Relief) will be combined to benefit the several families in the USN community (most of whom are faculty) whose houses were in the direct path of the flood. Every dollar will be allocated to meet these families' immediate needs.


Thanks in advance for anything you can do.
