Parkas for Pakistan

October 22nd, 2010

At the University of Oregon we prepare students to be citizens of the world. Here is an opportunity for our students and to come together with the entire community to help our neighbors in Pakistan. The UO has teamed up with St. Vincent de Paul to collect outerwear donations for people affected by the recent horrific flooding there. The people of Pakistan are suffering from natural and man-made ravages. I encourage folks to help in this effort. I want to thank my colleague Professor Anita Weiss, our friends at St. Vincent de Paul, the UO Athletics Department, and the many students dedicated to making this happen. More details on "Parkas For Pakistan" are available on our Media Relations website.
