Help for Haiti Games at Davis (This Friday and Saturday)

Tomorrow (Friday, January 22, 2010) and Saturday, January 23, 2010 there will be basketball games at Davis that will benefit the Haiti effort.

6 PM

Davis College Falcons Basketball Coach Dan Rathmell challenged the student body this week to get involved in a fundraiser, in addition to the "Help for Haiti" below. His challenge? "Come to Friday night's 6 PM game and see Coach Schreiber and I coaching barefoot." The organization, Samaritan's Feet, came up with the idea and started an outreach to supply children with shoes and the Word of God. There are several ways people can contribute to this effort. One of the most important ways is by spreading the word of this need, and showing up to support Samaritan's Feet. Another way is by purchasing a pair of new children's shoes and bringing them to the game on Friday night in Robb Activity Center at 7 PM. Coach Rathmell will gather the shoes and drop the moff at one of the several drop houses.

1 PM and 3 PM

The Davis College Falcons basketball teams have organized a fundraiser to benefit victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti.

Both teams will compete against Valley Forge Christian College of Phoenixville, PA. Donations will be accepted during the games to be held in Robb Activity Center on the campus at 400 Riverside Drive, Johnson City, New York.

Tickets are $3 for adults and $1 for students. Children age 5 and under are free. Make a Secure Donation to Samaritan's Purse for the Haiti Relief Effort Today: Visit Samaritan's Purse
