TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

University of Alabama students hosted an iPod drive for people suffering from memory loss at the University's Ferguson Student Center.

Music & Memory Tuscaloosa, a student-driven Alzheimer's advocacy group at the University of Alabama, collected gently used iPods Wednesday.

They say people suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's and other memory diseases have great recall when it comes to music memory.

"And those are the people that once loved and cared for us. So it's kind of like going back to them, showing them that some love, care and respect that they deserve," said Sarah Loper.

The iPod Drive ends Thursday.

You can learn more about the effort and donate an I-pod by going to the group's Facebook page at MusicAndMemory.Tuscaloosa.
