Donations for Hamden Fire Victims

February 17, 2022

This past Monday, in a large fire at an apartment complex adjacent to the Facilities Building on Warner Street in Hamden, over 50 individuals/families lost their homes and all their belongings, including some of our students.

Hamden's Keefe Community Center is asking for donations for the families who were impacted by this tragedy. The Office of Student Involvement & Leadership Development has worked with SGA to collect monetary donations to purchase much needed supplies and clothing for the families affected. Please consider donating today through the university system, TouchNet, which can be accessed here.

In addition, clothing for both adults and children can be delivered to the Keith Center in Hamden on Dixwell Ave. on February 17 & 18 and to the Clarion Hotel on Whitney Ave on Monday morning, February 21. Sharon Jones, an SCSU alumna and recent graduate of the university’s DSW program, is the contact person at the Keith Center.
