Relief Effort Underway for Victims of Nepal Earthquake

Contact: Mike Greife
WARRENSBURG, MO (April 28, 2015) – The University of Central Missouri has organized a campus-wide relief effort for those affected by the tragic April 25 earthquake in Nepal.

According to Shari Bax, vice provost for student experience and engagement at UCM, cash or check donations will be received from the campus community, as well as the local community, during the Fun Before Finals event planned for Thursday, April 30. A table will be set up from 7 p.m. to midnight in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on campus.

For those unable to attend the April 30 event, Keshav Bhattarai, professor of geography, has worked with the fundraising site CrowdRise to establish an online resource for making donations. Click here to access the online giving site.

"We will continue to coordinate relief efforts as additional partners join us in this effort," Bax said. "The UCM community will continue to offer available resources to assist those in need during this time of crisis."
