Due to the destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian, on Sabbath, September 14 , a love offering will be collected in the Huntsville area churches for our Bahamian students. Donors can also give at the Oakwood University website. Every dollar will go to tuition support, and room and board, and the University will match every dollar given with $3.00 from its internal funds to help our students from the Bahamas.
In partnership with the First Seventh-day Adventist Church of Huntsville and local vendors, the Oakwood University family is collecting relief items for people in the Bahamas, who have lost everything as a result of Hurricane Dorian.
Drop off locations are located in Blake Center on the Oakwood University campus, at the offices of WJOU, 4920 University Square, and at First Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1301 Evangel Drive, Huntsville, AL 35816. Donations will be accepted through September 29, and will be transported by Applewhite Movers.
