The students at Pima Medical Institute, 370 Printers Parkway in Colorado Springs are in the second phase of a food and supply drive for victims of Hurricane Katrina and now are also accepting donations at the campus from the public to help in the relief effort.

Items such as batteries, diapers, depends, clothes, shoes, non-perishable foot items that are easy to open and do not need to be cooked like granola bars, tuna, crackers, baby food, juice boxes and Gatorade are needed.

“Our students really stepped up to the plate to pitch in and help the people who have been affected by this disaster,” said Karen McGrath, campus director for the Colorado Springs career college. “However, it's an ongoing need and we are happy to use our campus as a collection site so people in the community can come by and make donations as well.”
