> Dear Faculty, Staff and Students:
>     Many of you know Marisa Allison, who taught for Women and Gender 
> Studies last semester and is a PhD student in sociology and WGST 
> certificate student. She will be traveling to Alabama soon, taking 
> much-needed supplies with her. Although all of her loved ones are 
> accounted for in the aftermath of the tornadoes, she is responding to 
> the tremendous need of her home state. At this point, the victims of 
> this tragedy need the very basics.
> *The Women and Gender Studies Center, JC 240K, will serve as a 
> drop-off spot for donated items*. Donations being accepted at this 
> location include diapers, slightly used and new clothing for all ages, 
> shoes, towels, blankets, boxes,  and tape (to package it all up). 
> Toiletries are in great demand such as -- tampons, sanitary pads, 
> adult diapers, toilet paper, razors, soap, tooth paste, toothbrushes, 
> deodorant, sunscreen, baby wipes, baby powder, and lotion.
>     The estimated 211 tornadoes that struck the southeastern United 
> States left a path of complete destruction. In Alabama alone there is 
> more than 1,000 miles of total devastation. The death toll from the 
> tornadoes has reached 340, making the twisters the second most deadly 
> in US history. The death toll continues to rise.
> *  Marisa says she will pick up the first set of donations Monday at 
> 4* to put on a trailer going down Tuesday. For those who live in 
> Arlington, you can also drop off donations at Marisa Allisonís house. 
> Email her at Marisa C Allison <[log in to unmask]> for her address. She 
> expressed her thanks to all our Women and Gender Studies family for 
> the help!
>     Hope to see many of you in the Center tomorrow with items to share 
> with people in Alabama.
> All the best,
> Suzanne
