Pittsburgh, PA -- The devastating tsunami that struck several Asian countries in December sparked an outpouring of support from people across the Pittsburgh area, and the La Roche community joined the effort. On Friday, January 7, all four area commercial television stations simulcast a live telethon titled “Pittsburgh Responds,” which raised money for the Red Cross to benefit the victims of the tsunami. La Roche students joined students, staff and faculty from other area colleges by answering phones and collecting pledges.

“I think it’s a great way to start off the new year – by helping others who need our support,” said Lonnie Nolker, president of the Student Government Association (SGA) at La Roche and a junior majoring in elementary education who volunteered his time to answer phones. “This shows that our students and our institution care about what’s going elsewhere.”

Joining Nolker in the effort were: Melissa Vrable, vice president of SGA and a sophomore majoring in Spanish education; and Leigh Ann Judkins, an SGA member and a junior majoring in elementary education.
