LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas at Little Rock's chapter of Young Life College is partnering with other schools around the state to help deliver supplies to Ebola victims in West Africa.
Items will be collected in the UALR Donaghey Student Center Wednesday and Thursday. Supplies may also be dropped off at the UALR Kappa Sigma fraternity on Thursday and Friday.
Needed items include bleach, disposable gloves, surgical masks and disinfectants, among other supplies. Monetary donations will also be accepted and will be used to buy non-contact body thermometers.
The students will travel to Lafayette, Louisiana, on Saturday to put the donations on a barge that will ship the items to victims.
