Vista College in Longview Announces Hurricane Harvey Relief Drop-Off Location
Richardson, Texas – August 30, 2017 – As the crisis continues to unfold, the thoughts and prayers of Vista College are with the millions of people in Houston, Beaumont and throughout the Gulf Coast who are impacted by this disaster. The Vista College – Beaumont Campus family has been impacted by the damage that Harvey has caused.
Many of Vista College’s Beaumont staff and students are now faced the uncertainty of how to move forward in Harvey’s wake. In addition to the Beaumont campus students impacted, Vista College also has more than 50 Online Campus students living in the Houston/Gulf Coast area. While Vista College has yet to hear of any significant injuries, many employees and students are currently without power or have been evacuated from their homes. Many of their homes are already under water with no timetable on when they will be able to return to assess the damage.
In efforts to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey in the Beaumont area, Vista College has setup drop-off locations at each campus. We are asking our communities to provide the following un-used items:
Basic medical supplies
Diapers for babies AND adults
“Ready to eat” food
The Vista College Longview Campus is located at 1905 W. Loop 281, Longview, TX 75604
Donated items will be accepted at our campuses until Saturday at 4pm. Vista College will then deliver the items to the Vista College Beaumont Campus. The specific delivery date and time has yet to be determined
