iitMSA Fundraising to Help Tornado Victims

In the first week of March, more than 11 states were hit hard by an early round of spring tornadoes. The storms came earlier than usual this spring and in the middle of the night, leaving many families unprepared for the devastation. Thousands of people were affected, hundreds of homes wiped away and 40 people lost their lives.

The Muslim Students’ Association is partnering with IIT’s Office of Campus life and Office of Spiritual and Service Learning to organize a fundraising drive at IIT to raise money for the tornado victims. The funds collected will be donated through the ICNA relief charity.

Cash donations will be collected Monday-Thursday, March 12 – 15 on the MTCC bridge between 12 – 1 pm.  You can also donate online here until Friday afternoon.

Please donate whatever you can to help our fellow countrymen, and also please spread the word. It is our hope to provide IIT students and staff the opportunity to step forward and participate in this charitable endeavor.
