Rowan Honors Katrina DonorsApril 27, 2006
The Katrina Recovery Team at Rowan University will host a reception to thank donors who supported the team's efforts during the fall and spring semesters on Thursday, May 4, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Owl's Nest in the Mark M. Chamberlain Student Center.
The Katrina Recovery Team?composed of dozens of students and faculty?volunteered time since last September to help rebuild school facilities in Picayune, Miss., and homes in St. Bernard Parish near New Orleans left destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
The University and individuals helped support the effort in numerous ways, from food donations for the drives to the Gulf Coast to cash donations for supplies. Katrina group members will honor their donors and recount some of their experiences.
