Anderson University to Support Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Three men on a Tri-S trip work to demo a building.

Anderson University is working to support the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts taking place in Houston and surrounding areas. AU students, faculty, and staff aim to exemplify our core values of servant leadership and generosity by working together to help the city and surrounding areas.

AU is currently partnering with Dr. James Lewis, former Dean of the School of Theology, and his church in Houston, the South Park Church of God. Their church building and homes of members of their congregation have experienced some damage from Hurricane Harvey. They are helping those in need in their community as well as families of current AU Ravens in the area.

AU's Student Government Association (SGA) is collecting cash and check donations in the SGA Office (Olt Student Center) Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., as well as via PayPal. The AU community is invited to donate using the link as well.

In addition, a Tri-S trip is currently being planned to support rebuilding efforts in Houston over AU's spring break. If you have any questions about that trip, you are welcome to contact the Tri-S Office.

"Our prayers and support are with the people of Houston and surrounding areas," said AU President John S. Pistole. "We're grateful for opportunities to contribute our service to their recovery."
