Lacey Family Hurricane Relief

The family of one of our international student-athletes, Jonel Lacey, was severely impacted by Hurricane Irma.  The hurricane directly hit the island of Tortola (British Virgin Island) and left severe devastation which included death, destruction of homes, no power, water and scarcity of food.  In addition, her former national team coach lost his life in the hurricane.  We are asking for coaches, teams, our university community, alumni and friends to assist this family as they begin the long process of putting their lives back together.  Please make a donation of any size which would be greatly appreciated by the Jonel and her family.  All donations will go directly to the family to assist with buying necessities and items lost during the hurricane. On behalf of UAlbany Athletics, thank you in advance for your generosity.
