HLGU donates 20K pounds of items to American Red Cross
Hannibal-LaGrange University collected 20,000 pounds of food and bottled water for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Nursing student Delores Hanniford and the Craigmiles School of Nursing organized the project.
After experiencing a devastating house fire three years ago, Hanniford says she felt compelled to help those in need just as others once helped her.
"It was a wonderful turnout between the campus, community, and faculty and staff as many people could participate and they did and they came out in droves," said HLGU Public Relations Director Carolyn Carpenter.
Hanniford's father, Kevin Patrick of Kevin Patrick Trucking, delivered the donations to the American Red Cross headquarters in Peoria.
