CCU gives fans chance to help in Harvey relief effort

The Coastal Carolina University Department of Athletics is conducting a relief drive to assist those in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in its aftermath.

Coastal Carolina students and staff, as well as community members, are encouraged to participate in the relief efforts. At this time, the most pressing needs for those affected by the flooding are cleaning supplies and toiletries. Clothing and furniture WILL NOT BE accepted.

Individuals who are interested in donating supplies can bring their items to Arcadia Hall (132 Chanticleer Dr. West) on the campus of Coastal Carolina. For further questions regarding donations, please contact Cari Rosiek of the Department of Athletics (cari@coastal.edu | 843-349-4126).

CCU will accept donations on Saturday prior to kick off at Blanton Park (Alumni Tailgate location) and the Victory Bell (adjacent to Springs Brooks Stadium).  The Chants open the season at 7 p.m. against UMass at Brooks Stadium.

For those that would prefer to make a monetary donation, please follow the link http://www.goccusports.com/ot/caf-flood-relief.html.

“The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics is once again willing and eager to assist those that have had their lives disrupted by a natural disaster,” said Rosiek. “Last September we held a successful drive to help those affected by flooding in Louisiana, and we would like to replicate that effort to help the people of Houston. As a community that felt the effects of a hurricane last fall, we can certainly empathize with the people of Houston and their current situation.”

Lewis Truck Lines Inc. has once again graciously donated its services to assist with the relief drive, and will transport all donated goods once the drive is complete. Please refer to the list below to view preferred donations:
