To the BMCC Community:
Last week, Hurricane Matthew destroyed parts of Haiti, the Caribbean and southeastern coasts along our country including sections of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. In a time when terrorism has taken center stage in our concerns for safety, it is important to acknowledge the devastating impact of natural disasters such as this. The hurricane endangered people and has taken many lives. It destroyed properties, uprooted homes and will change many communities for years to come. Among the individuals directly affected by the hurricane are friends and families of our own BMCC community.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy. Support services are available to the BMCC community who have been impacted or are in need of assistance.
