Several groups of Montana State University students are collecting clean T-shirts to be sent to Haiti relief.

MSU Writing 101 students, along with the ASMSU Senate and the Global Culture Club, are collecting T-shirts for Haiti relief. The groups hope to collect 5,000 T-shirts by April 1.

Clean, lightly used or new T-shirts can be dropped off in plastic bins placed at residence halls campus-wide, the ASMSU Senate Office in the SUB and the MSU Bookstore. All sizes of T-shirts are needed.

According to Jill Davis, MSU English professor who is helping coordinate the drive, the MSU drive worked with the Center for International Disaster Information to be matched with recipients for the T-shirts. The shirts that MSU collects will go to Our Little Brothers and Sisters/Nos Petits Frères et Soeurs orphanage as well as orphanages in Kenscoff, and St. Helene, a neo-natal ward in Tabarre, St. Damien, just outside Port-au-Prince and a mobile medical outreach team that will distribute them while bringing water, food and living supplies to Fonds des Blancs, Jacmel, Leogane and some of the tent cities in Petionville and PaP.

In addition, $1,259.24 has been raised in collections jars that were placed around the MSU campus in recent weeks. Coordinators said that money was sent to provide medical services in Haiti.
