PSU Bookstore taking donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey

Tue Sep 5, 2017

As the devastation of Hurricane Harvey continues to unfold, Portland State University Bookstore has partnered with the American Red Cross to accept customer donations at the register. Customers inclined to donate may stop by the store, located at 1715 SW 5th Avenue. In addition, Portland State University Bookstore has also worked with the Red Cross to create a donation microsite for online customers. Links to this donation site can be found on the Store News & Offers page of the bookstore’s website, as well as on the thank-you page after a customer has placed an order.

As part of Follett Higher Education Group’s nationwide network of campus stores, Portland State University Bookstore joins hundreds of other campus stores accepting donations in-store and online. During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a similar partnership between Follett Higher Education Group and the American Red Cross generated $200,000 in contributions from campus store customers to those in need.
