Anderson and AIBA Pitch In For Fire Relief
The Anderson School of Management served as a drop-off site for donations for those affected by the Assayii Lake Fire on the Navajo Nation.
The American Indian Business Association student organization, led by Jaye Francis, coordinated the effort and transported several truckloads of food, clothing, and personal necessities to Naschitti Chapter House, one of the command centers near the fire. Moving stories of homes and livestock lost to the fire spurred the students to further spread the word of items needed for victims and evacuees.
Many thanks to those who gave so generously, and to Jaye and AIBA for launching and organizing the donation initiative.
