UA Hope-Texarkana Delivers Needed Supplies to Arkansas Tornado Victims
Back a couple of months ago tornados ripped through Arkansas hitting Little Rock and the small town of Wynne. The University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana recently delivered supplies to the tornado victims in Wynne, Arkansas.
Among those helping deliver the donated items were staff members Dr. Christine Holt, Reginald Lambert, and Lisbeth Bello to the board chairman Freddie Smith. Also members from the Student Government Association and members from the Texarkana Campus Crusade for Christ student organization.
Dr. Cathie Cline, EACC President of the East Arkansas Community College stated in a press release,
Thank you to UA Hope Texarkana for assisting with an incredibly generous donation of gifts and supplies for our college’s tornado relief efforts.
More than 1,200 people live in Wynne, and a lot of them are students at EACC. The small town was hit by a tornado on March 31. Four people died in the storm and at least 28 were injured.
Reginald Lambert, UAHT Dean of Students said
It was remarkable to see our community come together when fellow Arkansans need us the most.
He also said that it was amazing to see the UAHT students be such a big part of this humanitarian experience.
