SSU sending supplies to Liberia

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A group of Savannah State University students and professors have reached their goal to send much needed supplies to Liberia.

They spent about four hours loading up the container of things they've been collecting for months.
The donations heading to sister universities include toiletries, school supplies, books and anything in between.

They tell WTOC their main purpose is to spread education and literacy across Africa.

"So half of it is probably wheelchairs and the rest of it is books, books and more books," said SSU Professor Terri Clay.

"We didn't expect to completely fill the container but I'm so happy that we have and we're just ecstatic," said senior at SSU, Immanuel Golden.

The container hits the port on Monday and will ship out April 8th, making its way to Liberia in early May.
