CAMPUS COMMUNITY RAISES MORE THAN $7,600 TO TSUNAMI RELIEF

The Old Dominion University community recently raised $7,691.20 to aid the victims of the tsunami disaster in southeast Asia, with the funds going to the International Red Cross.

The campus fund-raising campaign culminated Feb. 19 at the Student Services-sponsored "Late Nighter" in Webb Center. The event itself was responsible for raising nearly $500.

Donations from student organizations and the campus community totaled $5,797.20, and Aramark contributed $1,894 from its own fund-raising efforts to put the overall total above $7,600.

The Student Government Association-sponsored flea market, which was supported by more than 20 university organizations, earned $1,441.67, while can-collection donations across the campus netted $406.70.

The following campus organizations made significant contributions to the campaign: Model U.N., $1,402.21; Greeks, $1,385; Indian Student Association, $312.62; Asian American Pacific Student Union, $285; and Residence Life, $85.39.
