MADISON, WI — The Associated Students of Madison are working with other campus groups to run a goods drive for Hurricane Sandy victims.  The drive will run from November 29th through December 8th, during which there will be campus events by First Wave and several drop off locations available for collection of necessary goods for the victims.

The Presbyterian House has offered their support of this relief effort as a drop off location and communication resource to the UW- Community. The Greek community has also reached out to ASM to collaborate in the coordination of goods and organizing drop off locations.  UW Housing will provide barrels for drop off in housing locations throughout the drive, and students from ASM and other groups will assist in moving goods to where they can be transported to affected areas.

First Wave is offering free events open to all UW-Madison students during the week of the Sandy Relief Drive, which will also be drop-off locations for the donation of the necessary goods. First Wave’s events are Friday, November 30th at 3:30pm in the H’Doubler Auditorium of Lathrop Hall; Friday, December 7th at 9:00pm, in the MSC Lounge of the Red Gym; and Saturday, December 8th at 9:00pm at the Rathskeller in the Memorial Union.

ASM is currently looking for students and organizations interested in helping out with the drive and efforts for collection of goods.  The University and ASM will continue to work on the finalization of plans for the relief, and notify campus of additional details and needed items. Students can look to ASM’s Facebook page for updates (
