HPu CaresHIGH POINT, N.C., DATE, 2012 – High Point University students are showing their support for families and friends affected by Hurricane Sandy through numerous fundraising events. The university is matching every dollar raised by the students to support relief and rebuilding efforts through the American Red Cross, totaling $15,000 raised so far.

Athletics will be donating a dollar for every upper-level seat for basketball games until Dec. 2, and donations boxes will be located in the Millis Center and Hayworth Fine Arts Center for the community to participate. In addition to the money raised, 61 pints of blood were donated at the blood drive on Nov. 14. 

“Our students wanted to help families affected by Hurricane Sandy; many who were directly affected by loss of homes and damage,” says Gail Tuttle, vice president for student life. “Students wanted to help with recovery efforts and focus on helping the region. In times of loss, the HPU community is always ready to help those in need and our students do this on a continual basis.”
