"Oklahomans know how to respond to those in need and OSU wanted to help in any way we can," said OSU System CEO and President David Schmidly. "We've all been touched by the catastrophic effects of the hurricane, and we are pleased to work with the American Red Cross to reach out to the nearly 50,000 Cowboys fans coming to Boone Pickens Stadium."
OSU student and faculty volunteers will be collecting donations in nearby parking lots and around the stadium. Inside Boone Pickens Stadium, volunteers will be situated at special collection stations on both the ground and mezzanine levels on the south side of the stadium. The university does not normally seek donations in stadium parking areas but is making an exception Saturday because of the magnitude of the need.
Checks should be made to the "American Red Cross," and please write "OSU-hurricane relief" in the check's memo line.
Volunteers will be wearing special Pistol Pete-Red Cross t-shirts and carrying American Red Cross containers.
"We want to thank our volunteers, and we hope everyone will consider making a donation to this important relief effort," Schmidly said.
