CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The Coastal Carolina University Athletics Department is collecting supplies to assist those in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in its aftermath.

CCU students and staff, and community members are encourages to participate in the relief efforts.

Right now, the most pressing needs for those affected are for cleaning supplies and toiletries, according to a news release from the university. Below is a list of preferred donations.

CCU asks that donations be brought to Arcadia Hall, located at 132 Chanticleer Drive West at the CCU campus. Fans attending the season-opener football game against UMass on Saturday can drop supplies off at the Victory Bell next to Springs Books Stadium, or at the Alumni Tailgate at Blanton Park.

Those wishing to make a monetary donation to the Athletic Department for relief efforts can do so here.

"The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics is once again willing and eager to assist those that have had their lives disrupted by a natural disaster," said Rosiek. "Last September we held a successful drive to help those affected by flooding in Louisiana, and we would like to replicate that effort to help the people of Houston. As a community that felt the effects of a hurricane last fall, we can certainly empathize with the people of Houston and their current situation."
