Join the William Paterson University Community in helping to support the victims of Hurricane Matthew - the most brutal storm in a decade — which devastated Haiti and other Caribbean islands. The WP Student Government Association with assistance from the Office of Campus Activities, Service and Leadership are working together with many student organizations to collect funds for UNICEF to help those in need.
Help us exceed our $2000 goal for the William Paterson community by donating to UNICEF by November 11, 2016.
How can YOU help raise funds for UNICEF?
Student Organizations: The student organization that raises the most funds will receive $200 from Campus Activities to help support an on-campus program!
• Pick-up an orange Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF box in the Campus Activities Office (UC302) and collect money from family and friends. Show your support by dressing up for Halloween and gathering needed funds!
• Host a fundraising event (i.e. bake sale), incorporate fundraising into an already planned event or donate proceeds from an event to UNICEF. Boxes must be returned to CASL by November 11!
• Set-up a team page for your organization under this WP Pioneers for Hurricane Matthew Relief site and encourage family and friends to donate to UNICEF directly on-line.
Individuals: Students can earn a low-level civic engagement badge credit by collecting funds!

When disaster strikes, children are the most vulnerable. In fact, more than 500,000 kids are menaced by this catastrophe and its dangerous aftermath. Eighty percent of homes in the most affected region have been damaged or destroyed. Nearly 16,000 people are living in shelters. Hundreds of schools are out of commission. Cholera cases are growing daily, making safe, clean water a top priority. UNICEF can meet children's needs on many fronts — quickly, effectively and efficiently. Donate now to help UNICEF take rapid, lifesaving action for children and their families suffering from this terrible storm. 90% of every dollar spent goes directly to assist children.
