Relief Effort Funds

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, October 2012, the College community rallied to assist those in need. Many of our students, staff, and faculty were provided monetary assistance through a variety of available funds such as the Petrie Foundation. Another source of funding was donations made from within our own community. After assisting many and outreaching numerous times to the campus, we were left with a total of $2,740.83 in collected funds that were not distributed. With almost four years having passed since Superstorm Sandy, the plan is to use these undistributed funds to assist with the CSI Food Pantry, which opened last fall. This plan will be implemented as of Thursday, September 1. If anyone has any questions or concerns, they should feel free to contact Carol Brower, Director of Student Life, at carol.brower@csi.cuny.edu or 718.982.3088.
