OSU to collect hurricane relief donations at Saturday's football game

Thursday, September 1, 2005

Around 150 Oklahoma State University volunteers will take donations at the Cowboy football game with Montana State on Saturday evening to assist those devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

“Oklahomans know how to respond to those in need, and OSU wanted to help in any way we could,” said OSU System CEO and President David Schmidly. “We’ve all been touched by the catastrophic effects of the hurricane, and we are pleased to work with the American Red Cross to reach out to the nearly 50,000 Cowboys fans coming to Boone Pickens Stadium.”

OSU student and faculty volunteers will collect donations in nearby parking lots and around the stadium. Inside Boone Pickens Stadium, volunteers will be situated at special collection stations on both the ground and mezzanine levels on the stadium's south side. The university does not normally seek donations in stadium parking areas but is making an exception Saturday because of the magnitude of the need.

Checks should be made to the “American Red Cross,” please write “OSU-hurricane relief” in the check’s memo line.

Volunteers will wear special Pistol Pete-Red Cross T-shirts and carry American Red Cross containers.

“We want to thank our volunteers, and we hope everyone will consider donating to this important relief effort,” Schmidly said.
