The University's department of intercollegiate athletics, in conjunction with the Red Cross, will provide containers outside of Autzen Stadium for fans to deposit financial contributions that will go directly to the Red Cross to help provide relief for the states of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi in wake of last week's natural disaster. Collection centers will be located in the stadium's east parking lot (Mallard Park concierge, Nike Tent), inside the Moshofsky Center and at the athletic department's marketing table at the southeast corner outside the Moshofsky Center until Saturday's 12:30 p.m. kickoff. Locations also will be set up inside Autzen Stadium at the Guest Services windows at the east and west ends of the stadium's main concourse as well as at the Duck Shop locations on the south concourse level through the end of the third quarter.
"This is an opportunity for our fans to really make an impact in the lives of the people of the Gulf Coast region in their darkest hour," according to Oregon Senior Associate Athletics Director Dave Heeke."
Heeke added that if every fan attending Saturday's football game were to donate $20, more than $1 million would by raised for the relief effort.
Fans are requested to deposit cash donations in the forms of checks made out in care of the American Red Cross.
