As the Hurricane Michael recovery process continues in much of Southwest Georgia, Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) students, faculty, and staff are joining the relief effort. Student organizations across multiple campuses are combining their efforts, both to provide nonperishable items to aid in recovery, and to provide refreshments for students who have been impacted by the historic storm.

All SRTC students who have been impacted by Hurricane Michael are encouraged to stop by the “Relief Response Room” in order to receive free donated relief and recovery items. The Relief Response Room, which opened on Monday, October 22nd, is located in Building A, Room 240 on SRTC’s Thomasville campus.

Relief response items will be available to students on the Bainbridge campus beginning on Tuesday, October 30 after 12:00 pm. Students may pick up these donated items from the Student Wellness Center.

Also on Monday, October 22nd, students on several campuses were provided with a welcome respite in the form of free refreshments at lunch. Southern Regional Technical College’s Student Government Association and SkillsUSA club members welcomed all students who were impacted by Hurricane Michael to enjoy free refreshments. Refreshments will be available once again at each of SRTC’s main campuses during the following times while supplies last:
