Rutgers Hurricane Relief Events

Dear students,


Puerto Rico is still recovering from the damage it suffered from Hurricanes Irma and Maria in late 2017. In solidarity with all Puerto Ricans affected by the hurricanes, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies and RU Bilingual Newark are coming together to provide support for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico by hosting two events the week of Valentines Day. The first event is collecting donations on Monday and Tuesday, February 12-13 from 11:00am-1:00pm in Conklin Hall, and Wednesday, February 14 from 12:00pm-2:00pm in the Robeson Student Center outside of Starbucks. The second event is a bake sale on Wednesday, February 14 from 12:00pm-2:00pm in the Robeson Student Center outside of Starbucks. All proceeds from the bake sale will go towards purchasing more supplies to send to Puerto Rico. 


We encourage you to participate in one or both of the events. Here is more information:
