treedown13.jpgFive Day Appeal for the Urgent, Unexpected, and Emergency Expenses

Monday, November 04, 2013 (Gettysburg) One year after the eye of super-storm Sandy wandered directly over the Seminary Ridge campus, the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg is issuing an invitation to all of its friends and alumni to help “brace for the next storm” and create an emergency fund for the urgent and unexpected needs.

After two days, friends, alumni/ae, faculty and staff have donated $6765 toward the five day blast.

The appeal is a short term, five day appeal with a goal of $25,000 to cover the kind of expenses that the Seminary has incurred in the last year alone: downed trees, two flooded student apartments, wind damage to a roof, broken glass and more.  In addition, the seminary has experienced premature and unexpected equipment failure in the climate control area of the Library, affecting the conditions for its book and archival collections. The appeal is scheduled to run actively from Monday, Nov 4 to Friday, November 8th.

The appeal is mainly being shared through electronic means with the invitation to be extended to friends of the Seminary’s constituents as well.  The Seminary is using its networks of social media to extend the reach of the invitation as well.
