In an effort to aid victims of Hurricane Harvey, Midwest Technical Institute (and our sister school Delta Technical College) has started a Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive for those affected by the damage in Texas.
We will fill semi-trucks with the donated items and deliver them directly to the Houston, TX area. Items being collected include bottled water, flashlights, batteries, diapers (all sizes), iPhone chargers, shovels, work gloves, trash bags, dust masks, dog food, cat food, cat litter, pillows, blankets, sleeping bags, cleaning supplies, chairs (folding/lawn chairs), paper plates, plastic ware (cups, silverware, etc.), napkins/paper towels, nonperishable food items, toiletries (toilet paper, soaps, body wash, toothbrushes, etc.) and towels.
Midwest Technical Institute will be accepting donations beginning Tuesday, August 29 through Friday, September 8 at each of the campuses Mondays from 8 AM – 6 PM, Tues-Thurs 8 AM – 8 PM, and Fridays 8 AM – 4 PM.
*The MTI Moline campus is only open until 6 PM on Wednesdays, not 8 PM.
