Faculty, staff and students at the University of North Texas Health Science Center wrapped up their tsunami relief campaign on Monday, Feb. 14, with a total of $11,018 in donations, but organizers say that money continues to trickle in.

â??Weâ??re still getting checks, and we still have T-shirts for sale,â? said Patti Lloyd, executive director, office of the president. â??We are excited about how generous our health science center has been thus far. We will continue to send any donations that we receive to the charitable organizations, even though our tsunami relief effort has officially ended.â?

Employees commemorated their participation in the campaign with a group photo Friday, Feb. 18, in the Atrium of the Education and Administration Building on the health science center campus.

Several events took place during the tsunami relief campaign, called Open Your Heartsâ??Help Save and Rebuild Lives, including a pizza sale hosted by the International Student Association, the Medical Student Government Association and Student Affairs, and a wine and food sampling event hosted by UNTHSC president Ronald Blanck, DO.

The charitable campaign took place from Jan. 18 to Feb. 14. Proceeds from all events, as well as other contributions, went to the American Red Cross, AmeriCares, International Relief Teams and Save the Children. Donations were also sent to charitable organizations that were specifically designated by employees.
