Uytengsu Calls for Help

| No Comments

In a couple months, the Trojan Family will celebrate the opening of the Uytengsu Aquatics Center named for Fred Uytengsu who provided the largest gift ever by a former USC student-athlete.  Now, Uytengsu is calling on the Trojan Family to follow his lead in supporting another important cause.

Uytengsu, who is the President of the Alaska Milk Corporation, recently donated $1 million in milk products and potable water to aid the disaster relief effort in the Philippines, which was decimated by a typhoon.  The current death toll in Uytengsu's homeland is in the thousands.

"Over the years, we have been affected by so many natural disasters, but this is beyond anything I have ever seen," said Uytengsu.  "The Filipino is resilient and can recover, but we are fortunate to have so many people caring and helping.  Every little bit helps, so anything the Trojan Family can do would be a tremendous boost."

The U.N. estimated that more than 11 million people have been affected by the typhoon.
