The students, faculty and staff at Brenau’s Augusta campus are now collecting bottled water donations to aid flood relief efforts in and around Columbia, South Carolina.
Brenau employees and members of the local community alike are encouraged to drop off donations at the first floor lobby of the 111 Davis Road facility in Martinez, Georgia.
The drive will continue throughout October. Andy Allen, an Adult and Graduate Studies enrollment counselor, said the drive may be expanded to include other items, like canned foods and toiletries.
“We’re 50 minutes down the road, so it felt like a very neighborly thing to do,” Allen said. “We really appreciate the community involvement that we are allowed to have in Augusta. We want people to know Brenau is here, and we are about serving our surrounding communities.”
For more information on collection efforts, please contact Allen at (706) 619-2513.
