SARASOTA - One of SMA's goals is to provide service and they believe sending supplies to people in need aligns with that mission. Students and residents are permitted to bring foods, toiletries, and some clothing for the drive. The campaign has received a sizable donation in its first 24 hours.  

"I was so shocked and so impressed with the community coming together. I've been getting e-mails from people from Tampa, companies, a law office in Tampa actually e-mailed me and saying that we're going to be donating next week so it's amazing how people are actually coming together and making this happen," SMA's Lorene Bauck said.
