The Rice University athletic department will stage a "clothing" drive to benefit those who were victimized by Hurricane Katrina. The athletic department's goal is to collect gently worn athletic shoes and athletic wear, to include any T-shirts, sweats, collared shirts, shorts, etc. The drive is primarily directed to the student-athletes and athletic department staff at Rice, but is most definitely open for donations by anyone inside or outside of the Rice community.
The drive begins immediately and will run through September 12, 2005.
Donations may be brought to Senior Associate Athletic Director Steve
Moniaci's office, room 113, in Autry Court. All donations collected will be turned over to the Salvation Army for distribution as has been requested by officials in charge of relief.
For those members wishing to contribute time, money, or any other items, it is recommended that you check www.rice.edu/service. The Rice community
involvement center has established this web site to advise people of what other opportunities exist to help.
Rice athletics thank you in advance for your consideration.
