In addition to raising the funds, SUNY Cortland students, faculty and staff members last year coordinated a sustained campus effort to round up needed supplies. The College also held a blood drive in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the second costliest hurricane in U.S. history, to help overcome a shortfall forced by the storm.
