27 Finlandia University faculty and staff along with the entire TRIO Upward Bound class volunteered on Thursday to help with Houghton County flood relief efforts. They were sent to various locations throughout Houghton County including Ripley, Hubbell and Agate street in Houghton. Jobs ranged from mucking basements to ripping up carpet to cleaning up rubble from the streets. A full album of photos can be viewed here.
“As of right now we have 19 service sites needing over 130 students available for students to volunteer at,” said René Johnson, a member of the Equity and Diversity Committee at FinnU. “This should make for a great day here at Finlandia University.”
