MCCC Mobilizes For Disaster Relief!

Three who gave a lot of their time to the effort: Joan DeLucia, Marie Mendez and Susan Zambrio. Many students volunteered to help out, including these freshmen.

The Plainsboro Community Emergency Response Team donated several skids of items, including water, cleaning supplies, paper products and infant supplies. FedEx donated a truck to transport the items to MCCC.
