SWOSU Group Helping with Collection of Items for Hurricane Victims

Area residents are asked to bring items to two locations on the Southwestern Oklahoma State University campus in Weatherford that will be taken to the Houston area to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The Organization of Student Athletic Trainers (OSAT) at SWOSU is spearheading the drive through September 8.   

Boxes have been set up at the following locations: Main Athletic Training Room (116) in Rankin Williams Fieldhouse and Athletic Office in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.

SWOSU President Randy Beutler appreciates the efforts by OSAT.

“So many people—including some of our students’ families—have been  affected by this tragedy,” Beutler said. “Our thoughts are with everyone affected and please know that the SWOSU family is thinking about the victims and wanting to help.”

Items being accepted include such things as non-perishable food, water, diapers, bottles, baby formula, flashlights, batteries, new pillows, blankets, etc.
