In two days, $1,000 was raised for Direct Relief, a not-for-profit charity based in California that supports disaster response efforts, including emergency shipments of medications, medical supplies and other essentials to aid health providers and first responder organizations in the fire-ravaged areas. Homemade treats and sweets were donated by GSBMS students, faculty and staff, from left, Hannah Mulhall, Rachana Maniyar, and Liz Newman, all Ph.D. candidates in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, staffed the bake sale tables.
