GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota’s student-athletes are teaming up with the American Red Cross to help provide relief for people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The UND basketball and hockey teams are donating team apparel (including shoes) to hurricane victims. Additionally, UND’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) encourages Fighting Hawks fans to donate financial contributions by visiting the following link: https://www.redcross.org/donate/cm/undathletics-emp.
UND SAAC President Lyndsay Hathaway, a junior outfielder on the softball team, said her fellow student-athletes have many ties to the Houston area and encouraged SAAC to take a lead role in organizing aid efforts.
“We as an athletics department decided to collaborate with the American Red Cross to help aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Hathaway. “This is a great opportunity for our UND family and athletics department to help those affected by disaster, similar to what happened to our Grand Forks community following the flood of 1997.”
