The tragedy in Oso hits home for Huskies

Michael K. Young

Every day the news from the mudslide zone in Oso gets worse as rescue workers dig through the muck and debris to find those still missing in the tragedy. The loss this community is facing is unfathomable. And with more than 300 UW faculty, staff, students and alumni in the area, the loss to the Oso community is also a great loss to our own.

If you would like to lend your support to our friends and neighbors in Snohomish County, we’ve put together the following list of organizations to which you can make a contribution. Please continue to keep the people of Oso and the surrounding area in your thoughts and in your hearts.
