Concern, Assistance for Hurricane Victims

September 2, 2021

Dear Members of the Drexel Community,

As we witness the images of flooding, tornado damage and widespread disruption wreaked by Hurricane Ida in communities across the Philadelphia region and far beyond, on the Gulf Coast, our thoughts and prayers are with those caught in the path of the storm.

Our Office of Student Life stands ready to assist and support students and families impacted by the storms.

Now that the rains have moved on, the need to aid and comfort the victims of this storm will continue long afterward. As we have seen with previous storms, I am sure many will want to do what they can to aid in the recovery.

In keeping with Drexel's culture of caring, service and philanthropy, I want to encourage everyone who can to consider making a donation to help hurricane victims through the appropriate charity or aid agency of their choice. The University will do its part as well.

We are at our best as a community when we stand ready to help each other, and all those in need.


John Fry
