RCW: KU Leads 4.3
The devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey have been felt across the nation as well as here in the Jayhawk community, as a number of student-athletes call Houston and the surrounding area home. SAAC and KU Leads are helping facilitate donations for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts from Kansas Athletics. Teams across the athletic department have contributed to collection efforts by donating wide ranges of clothing items and personal items over the past few weeks. The donations have now filled up an entire room with boxes and bags of supplies.
Student-athletes also volunteered at collection stations around Memorial Stadium during the Kansas football season opener vs. Central Michigan on September 9. A public service announcement was played on the video board featuring student-athletes from Houston encouraging fan donations.
