MSSU Professor Collecting Donations For Colorado Flood Victims

Updated:

 

An associate professor of art at MSSU is collecting items for victims of the Colorado flood.

On Monday the death toll rose to eight after authorities recovered the body of a woman swept away by a wall of water 10 days ago.

 

There were more than 1,200 people listed as unaccounted for when the floods began, but rescuers have successfully contacted many of the people on the list, the Associated Press reported.

Official Press Release from MSSU:

JOPLIN, MO (SNS) - Josie Mai, associate professor of Art at Missouri Southern State University, will take a van full of donations to the flood plain in Colorado on the weekend of Sept 27.


Mai feels this is another chance for Joplin to "give back" the same type of assistance received after the Joplin tornado over two years ago. She is in touch with friends at the Center for Disaster and Risk Analysis in Ft. Collins to know what and where to bring items.


On Thursday, Sept 26, from 4 – 7 p.m., there will be a large white van parked near tables and a dumpster in the MSSU faculty parking lot at the corner of Newman and Duquesne Roads (near the entrance to Art and Music departments).


Mai asks that contributors bring things that are only on this specified list, and that are new or barely used.


If you can't drop off that night, bring donations to the MSSU Art Department earlier in the week.


The following items are needed:

Basic home first aid kit
Sunscreen
Bug repellent
Gloves
Personal hygiene items
Female hygiene items
Baby and adult diapers
