Albany – The State University
of New York today launched the SUNY
Helps website, where donations can be made to help SUNY provide tuition assistance
to students affected by significant storm/flooding damage during the 2011
“In the spirit of kinship and
community, we ask the SUNY family to band together and help those most affected
by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L.
Zimpher. “Though physical damage to SUNY campuses as a result of the storms was
relatively minor, some of our students’ families have not been so fortunate.
Many have been forced from their homes due to flooding and other damage. Others
suffered the complete loss of their personal belongings, save for the clothing
on their backs.”

SUNY Helps is eligible to
receive donations by all members of the SUNY family such as foundations, alumni
associations, SUNY officers, employees and trustees, and others.
All of the proceeds will be
used to enable SUNY to provide financial assistance in the form of tuition
scholarships to students affected by the storms.
