RPI Extends Deadline for Matching Contributions to January 31st
Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson, President of Rensselaer, has announced that the deadline for matching donations from students, faculty, and staff towards the relief effort in Haiti has been extended to January 31st.
I don’t have any figures, but I’ve been told that many have taken advantage of the offer and have extended an incredible amount of generosity towards those suffering from the after-effects of the earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince.
If you’re a current RPI student, faculty, or staff member (I know some of you that read this are!), I encourage you to take advantage of this offer. Your amount, even if it seems insignificant against the grand scope of this tragedy, will literally help save lives and perhaps even give a future to these long-suffering people.
