Hope for Haiti: There is currently a terrible need for support in Haiti, and anyone looking for philanthropies would do well to continue the support SUNY Delhi gave in the spring of 2010. We are one of 5 schools who won the TrueHero.org contest for Relief Efforts for Haiti! Thanks to all who voted! See our message to the children by clicking on this link, or going to TrueHero.org. We have raised over $5,000! Thanks to all who donated to the Comedy Shows, Talent Show, Pancake Breakfast and bought pins on "Pin Day". The Bowl-a-thon on March 10th was lots of fun and a great way to raise funds. We are sending all funds to Hope For Haiti, designating our efforts to a "sister" school. Murphy Hall was the grand winner of the Residence Halls contest! Congratulations!
