Although Texas and Oklahoma usually meet as rivals on the football field, UT students have set that rivalry aside to help people affected by a tornado that left 24 dead in Moore, Okla.
UT Student Government will be collecting clothing and non-perishable items for victims beginning Thursday. The “Texas Helps Oklahoma Relief Efforts” donation drive will last until next Wednesday. Donations will go to the Salvation Army in Austin.
Where: The Student Government office in room 2.102 of the Student Activity Center; the Multicultural Engagement Center, room 1.102 in the Student Activity Center; and the University Co-op on Guadalupe Street.
When: People can donate in the UTSG office and the MEC Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The University Co-op is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Co-op is open Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
What to bring: Clothing, toothbrushes, toothpaste, baby formula, bottles, diapers, hand sanitizer, heavy-duty gloves. Any clothing should be brought in one bag. All other items should be placed in separate bag.
