NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk Community College’s Student World Assembly, Phi Theta Kappa and the Peace Club’s collection drive for the victims of the earthquake that hit Ecuador last month will continue through Friday.
There will be collection boxes in the East Atrium and near the main entrance of West Campus. The items most needed include water filters, canned food, dried food, sleeping bags, hygienic kits, portable lamps (LED or rechargeable), batteries and cookware. Light clothing for tropics (new or lightly worn) are also being accepted.
The earthquake, estimated at 7.8 on the Richter scale, killed more than 650 people, injured over 16,000 and left tens of thousands of Ecuadorians homeless.
Norwalk Community College is located at 188 Richards Avenue.
