2012 Tornado Disaster Relief Drive  

household goods and debris piled up on collapsed building stuctures in Denniston, Kentucky March 2 2012 after tornado

The tornados that slashed through our neighboring state Kentucky early in 2012 left devastation and disaster in its wake. Eastern's S.G.A., in partnership with the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, invited students and the general public to drop off needed relief supplies at  the Donation Station in the college's Moorefield Center lobby. It turned out to be a very successful relief effort. Thanks to everyone who participated!

“Our Constitution’s Framers were willing to risk everything they owned, even their own lives, to give us the great treasure that is our nation and our form of government. Each of us has an obligation to hand that treasure on to future generations intact and strong and secure.”
— the late WV Senator Robert C. Byrd
(longest-serving senator in US history, whose 2004 legislation established Constitution Day as
an annual observance of national reflection and celebration)
