Williams Students Raise Money For Haiti Relief


The devastating earthquake that struck Haiti has motivated students at Williams Baptist College to do their part. Collections allowed students, as well as faculty and staff, to contribute to Haiti relief funds, and they raised $1,500.

The offerings, arranged through WBC’s Office of Campus Ministries, were taken during a Tuesday night worship service, known as Collide, and during the college’s weekly chapel service on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

“I was impressed just by the fact that they are college students and don’t have much money themselves, but they were very generous,” said Erin Putnam, assistant director of campus ministries. “I can tell that they care a lot about the needs of those who are suffering.”

The collected funds have been sent to the Florida Baptist Convention, which has been at the forefront of Baptist relief efforts in Haiti.
