About the Project…

Terps4Terps, coordinated by the University of Maryland’s Omicron Delta Kappa - Sigma Circle, is raising funds to support UMD students and families personally affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.There are over 300 current UMD students from regions affected by the recent Hurricanes. Specifically, 39 students are from areas of Texas affected by Harvey, and 271 are from areas of Florida and the Caribbean affected by Irma. Funds contributed to Terps4Terps will support the University’s Student Crisis Fund, a university program dedicated to helping Terps affected by unexpected crises like these recent natural disasters. Your contribution can help members of the campus community get back on their feet in this time of great need. We hope you will join us today in uniting as one Maryland family.

***Funds not used to support Student Crisis Fund requests from victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma will ultimately be used to support other Terps in crisis.***
