Wolverine Disaster Relief: U-M students provide support in aftermath of disasters

Thurs, Sept. 13, 2018 – ANN ARBOR – As Hurricane Florence pummels the Carolina coast, the new Wolverine Disaster Relief team is busy getting ready in case they’re needed.

Founded in 2017 by Tim Carter, WDR co-president and an MBA student at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, the disaster club provides material, financial and volunteer support for those who have been affected by any natural or man-made disasters. Among its goals: assessing urgent needs and recruiting students and alumni to assist with long-term reconstruction projects. In its first year, the club sent volunteers to Puerto Rico and Texas to assist in hurricane relief efforts.
