SURGE targets homelessness; aims to raise awareness, funds

A group of dedicated young women are committed to “SURGE the community,” as part of a new student organization recently formed. Over every semester SURGE plans to host a series of five events in support of its name—to strengthen, unite, reshape, give back and empower the community.

A group of dedicated young women are committed to “SURGE the community,” as part of a new student organization recently formed.  Over every semester SURGE plans to host a series of five events in support of its name—to strengthen, unite, reshape, give back and empower the community.  Calling itself a sisterhood, the group invites other civic-minded young women on campus to join their cause.  SURGE aims to increase awareness and raise funds to alleviate the challenges of homelessness in our community. 

“SURGE is an important  part of the WPI environment,” according to Johari Samuels, the organization’s president.  A junior major in civil engineering, Samuels considers the group to be a bonding experience for its members as they reach out to help the local community.  SURGE is made up of women students from every class and a variety of majors.
