Candlelight Vigil, Collection Planned in Support of Tsunami Victims

Old Dominion's Global Student Friendship organization will host a candlelight vigil at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, March 22, on Kaufman Mall in memory of those in Japan who have died, and those still suffering, as a result of the recent tsunami. In addition to hearing from members of the Japanese-American community about the effects of the tsunami, those attending the vigil can make monetary donations to the Save the Children Foundation.

ODU's Center for Service and Civic Engagement is helping to coordinate a number of relief-effort fundraising activities. A list of agencies accepting monetary donations and other relief needs can be found on the center's website: http://studentaffairs.odu.edu/osal/community/japanrelief.shtml

Volunteers from ODU's Chinese Language Club, Nichi-Bei Club and Asian Pacific American Student Union will be accepting cash donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the front lobby of Webb Center. All money collected will go to the Save the Children Foundation.
