Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief

October 30, 2012

Dear Carolina Students, Faculty and Staff:

Because of the combined impact of winter storms and Hurricane Sandy, more than 8 million Americans are without power, and many states have been flooded at record rates. Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this massive storm.

For students with families in the affected areas, please be aware that the Dean of Students Office is prepared to help you make arrangements with faculty regarding missed classes and assignments, as well as to access emergency funds and other helpful resources. Call the office at (919) 966-4042.

Employees who have concerns about family members in the affected areas are welcome to contact the University’s Employee Assistance Program at (877) 314-5841.

To best determine how the University can provide assistance to people and communities affected by Sandy, I have asked the North Carolina Institute for Public Health and the Carolina Center for Public Service to coordinate our campus efforts and to serve as a centralized source of information. Please share information about relief efforts with the center by emailing ccps@unc.edu. The information will be posted on the website http://www.unc.edu/ccps/disasterrelief starting Wednesday to provide information and updates regarding our response and opportunities to help.

Carolina’s relief efforts will begin tonight with a Hurricane Sandy disaster relief meeting to determine how we can best respond. The meeting, open to anyone who is interested, starts at 7 p.m. in Room 103 of the Campus Y. Extended Disaster Relief will send volunteers (students and others) where necessary to help with relief efforts.

Thank you for considering how to help others in need.

Sincerely,

Holden Thorp
