Akbayan SJSU is teaming up with fraternities and sororities on campus to hold a three-day relief drive beginning Tuesday.

"This will definitely help them because they don't have food, water, shelter, anything," said Hidee Reyes, a SJSU student. "So hopefully, everything we give them can help them out."

The SJSU relief drive will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday in front of San Jose State's event center. The organizations will have tables and boxes in front of the event center where the public can drop off canned goods, baby food and medicine.

In addition, students are collecting the following items:

  • dry noodles
  • rice
  • tooth brushes
  • tooth paste
  • bath soap
  • shampoo

SJSU is located at 1 Washington Square in downtown San Jose.
