ECU students donate thousands for hurricane relief efforts

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - People all across the east have been collecting money and supplies to help those impacted by recent hurricanes, and that includes students from ECU.

530 ECU students donated from their dining plan on Sept. 19-20 and raised $4,723.50 that will go directly to hurricane relief efforts.

Hurricane relief effort tables were set up at Todd Dining Hall, West End Dining Hall and in front of Dowdy student stores at Wright Plaza.

Students could make a donation of up to $10 using their Purple or Gold Bucks.

The ECU donations will be split and distributed to one college or University in Texas and one in Florida.
