· Rose State College is announcing that it is taking the following steps to assist those that were devastated by the tornado of May 20th.
First, the college’s Office of Student Activities will be serving as a "drop off" location for items such as bottled water, canned goods, diapers, sports drinks, and nonperishable food items. Donated items will be relayed by college personnel to Feed the Children and the Red Cross. The drop off location is located in the Student Center on the campus mall. (Building 14 on the campus map, located at rose.edu/visitors.) Once inside the Student Center, the student activities office can be found directly across from the Java Rose Café.
Secondly, an account has been established for monetary donations that will also be accepted at the Office of Student Activities. All donations will be provided to the Red Cross, earmarked for Oklahoma Disaster Relief.
The thoughts and prayers of the entire college community are with those affected. As needs evolve, the college will continue to seek ways that it can help the communities we serve.
