As part of the many ongoing efforts to support victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, donations will be collected Wednesday, Feb. 3 at Cal U's home basketball doubleheader against Slippery Rock.

Funds collected during the games will be donated to the American Red Cross.

The 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, working in conjunction with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, have collectively agreed to accept donations during all men's and women's basketball games scheduled from Jan. 27 through Wednesday.

"We will work with the various relief agencies that are involved in the recovery effort," said PASSHE Chancellor John C. Cavanaugh. "Several of our universities have done outreach efforts in Haiti in the past. Each of our universities and this office will work to do whatever we can to assist in this situation."

Next Wednesday's games begin at 6 p.m. in Hamer Hall.
