Carson-Newman students assist Union University tornado victims

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn -- Carson-Newman College is supporting students of Union University who were victims of last week’s tornado by collecting donations of cash and Wal-Mart cards. College officials hope to send the first wave of gift cards by the end of the week.

“Many people, including faculty, students, staff and trustees, have asked how we can help the folks at Union University,” said C-N Interim President Joe Bill Sloan. “According to Union President Dr. David Dockery, the real need now is help for students who have lost most of their clothing and other possessions.”

Area residents who wish to participate in the relief effort may contact C-N’s Campus Ministries at 865-471-3537, or deliver donations directly to the Campus Ministries Office, located at 2214 Branner Avenue in Jefferson City.

Checks should be made payable C-N Campus Ministries and noted for Union University Relief/Wal-Mart Cards.
