UVSC collecting items for Grenada

OREM — Utah Valley State College is collecting relief items for Grenada, the island nation devastated by Hurricane Ivan last month.

UVSC's only student from Grenada, Marlene Neptune, said 90 percent of the country's homes were destroyed in the storm.

Collected items will be shipped Thursday, Oct. 14.

Neptune said supplies requested include flashlights, batteries, cots, tents, non-perishable food, clothing, water purification tablets, medical supplies, power tools and hygiene items such as toothbrushes.

Anyone wishing to help can drop items off at the LDS Institute building at UVSC, the student government office or the Center for Service and Learning in Student Center 101.
