Owens Community College students are reaching out to the victims of the hurricane that has devastated the East Coast by organizing a Disaster Relief Supply Drive on the Toledo-area campus from Nov. 7-13. The supply drive efforts are being coordinating by Owens' Honors Club.

Items being collected include bottled water, blankets, sleeping bags, tarps, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, mops, brooms, shovels, snow shovels, rakes, box fans, flashlights, batteries, shop vacuums, canned and non-perishable food items, personal care items, baby care items, first aid supplies and pet supplies, among other items.

Area residents can drop off their charitable donations on the Toledo-area campus in the College Hall Atrium, the Student Health and Activities Center and the Library and Founders Hall. The campus is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.

At the conclusion of the supply drive, all disaster relief items will be donated to the ISOH/IMPACT organization for distribution.
