Rutgers collects pillows for hurricane victims
Students and staff at Rutgers University are working to make hurricane victims a little more comfortable.
Rutgers registrar Lisa Scott started “Project Pillow” as a way to provide comfort to those affected by the storms.
Volunteers spent Wednesday boxing up more than 1,000 unused pillows at the Rutgers Administrative Services building in Piscataway.
Scott says that the project began as a way to collect supplies for Hurricane Harvey victims, but then expanded to include victims of hurricanes Irma and Maria.
The program has partnered up with other organizations and agencies throughout the state, including the Secaucus Mayor’s Office, North Brunswick Fire Department and Union County PAC. There are 48 drop boxes for pillows statewide.
“Project Pillow” will be collecting donations through late December. More information can be found HERE.
