With the impact of Hurricane Harvey on the coastal shores of Texas, Southern Careers Institute campuses in Austin, San Antonio and the Rio Grande Valley are offering help to those in Corpus Christi needing assistance.

“We know that there may be many students, staff and alumni who may still be in Corpus Christi without food or clean water,” said Jacob Mayhew, CEO of Southern Careers Institute. “We want to do whatever we can to assist them.”

Students, alumni and the public who are in close proximity to a Southern Careers Institute campus in Austin, Brownsville, Harlingen, Pharr, or San Antonio are encouraged to bring non-perishable food, canned goods, bottled water and blankets to their nearest Southern Careers Institute campus this week. SCI staff members will be collecting donated items and transporting them to Corpus Christi later this week.

“We’re a very tight community, and we’re devastated that such an event can happen to part of our family,” said Sue Blanche, Vice President of Human Resources. “We’re also exploring additional options where all of us can help our community.”

To drop off food, water and blankets to help Corpus Christi, please visit any SCI campus near you.
