Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

Dear Lehman College Community,

This hurricane season has affected Puerto Rico, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Barbuda, Florida and Texas just to name a few.  The most recent earthquake in Mexico has left over 200 people dead.  The Office of Community Engagement at Lehman College is doing all that we can to keep up with the issues facing the world to encourage our students to become Global Citizens. We need your help!


Here is a list of where donations will be sent to some of the affected areas.


Hurricane Harvey - Greater Houston/Corpus Christi Food Banks

Hurricane Irma - Campus Book Drive for Barbuda - Beginning 9/25 (See Below)

Hurricane Maria - Unidos Por Puerto Rico

Mexico Earthquake - Topos Mexico 


In addition, the Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break program will explore the options of working in Texas, Florida, Dominican Republic and other affected areas as the need arises. Funds donated after October 30, 2017, will help to send students to assist in the affected areas that are seeking volunteers.


Please feel free to contact the Office of Community Engagement with any questions related to relief efforts.
