U of A football team hosting a drive to help Houston Flood Victims

Posted: Updated:

The U of A athletic department is heading up a drive to help out the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Starting Sunday, the U of A football equipment trucks will be parked on the east side of Arizona Stadium to collect donations of hygiene products, cleaning supplies, diapers.  And, following the Sept. 9th game against the Cougars, they'll follow the team's equipment van to Houston to deliver the donated goods.

HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF EFFORTS

With Hurricane Harvey wreaking havoc on southeast Texas, we want to rally all Wildcats, and specifically Wildcats in the Tucson and Southern Arizona community, to do our part to assist those who have and continue to be affected. Through donations, we intend to fill the Arizona football equipment truck with hygiene products, cleaning supplies and diapers, and drive them to Houston following our football game against the Cougars on Sept. 9.

The equipment truck will be positioned on the east side of Arizona Stadium on National Championship Dr. between 6th street and Enke Dr. We will be accepting donations from Sunday, Sept. 3 through Friday, Sept. 8. Volunteers will be available to receive donations at the following times:

Sunday, Sept. 3: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Monday, Sept. 4: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Tuesday, Sept. 5: 6-9 a.m. and 3-8 p.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 6: 6-9 a.m. and 3-8 p.m.

Thursday, Sept. 7: 6-9 a.m. and 3-8 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 8: 6-9 a.m. and 3-8 p.m.

We are closing the donation window on Friday, so we can ensure the truck is prepared to follow Houston’s equipment truck back to Texas and get the supplies to those that need them as quickly as possible.

Here is what we are looking to collect:

- New, unused, unopened personal hygiene products

- New, unused, unopened household cleaning supplies

          - Vinegar to clean mold

          - Mops

          - Brooms

          - Paper towels

          - Toilet paper

          - Cleanup towels

          - New, unused towels

- Diapers

Our equipment truck is a 48-foot, Suddath Relocation Systems semi, and we’re counting on you to Bear Down and fill it, so we can do our part in assisting those in need.

    With "Will & Grace" returning to NBC after an 11-year hiatus, it's only natural to wonder if "Seinfeld," which aired from 1989 to 1998, will make a comeback, too. Think again.
