Susanne Fenske – Clarion University Vice President of Student Affairs
As many of you have heard by now, one of the apartment buildings in town burned down late yesterday afternoon. From what we know at this point, there were two of our students and one of our employees living in that building. These individuals have lost everything in this tragic event, so in true Clarion fashion, there has been an outpouring of support and the administration has received numerous questions about how we can all help these individuals.
To that end, donations of clothing, toiletries, food and general living supplies are all being collected through the Center for Leadership and Involvement. The University has already made sure they have a place to live and replacements for their textbooks and schools supplies. If you would like to help those in our Clarion family, or any of the 13 other families impacted by this loss, please contact Kelly Ryan at email@example.com or by calling her office number at 814-393-1688. She can provide you with a more specific list of their needs.
Thank you for your generous support of these individuals.
