SpartanThunder.com, the #1 San Jose State Fan site, announces operation "Thunder Aid" as an offer to those that are in need due to Hurricane Katrina and her devastation.
In anticipation of damage from Hurricane Katrina, SpartanThunder.com, The #1 San Jose State Fan Site, has offered assistance to Louisiana state and federal officials to replenish medical inventories or provide emergency medical material if needed.
This will come in the form of donations made by the fans of SpartanThunder.com, and all proceeds will be sent to the Red Cross as a "gift" in the name of both SpartanThunder.com and it's association with the WAC conference.
The goal of "Thunder Aid" is to help provide additional medical inventories to support health services via the Red Cross, and to help respond to this emergency.
This program dubbed operation "Thunder Aid" will serve as a private back-up support arm to official emergency response efforts in the greater New Orleans metro area.
SpartanThunder.com staff has contacted officials in the national Red Cross Office of Emergency Services as to advise them of our efforts to help increase available inventories of medical supplies, food, water, etc.
There is more than one way that you can help as a fan of SpartanThunder.com and SJSU athletics.
SpartanThunder.com, The #1 San Jose State Fan Site will be accepting donations at the joint Eastern Washington tailgate this Saturday from 10AM until 3PM (Kick off).
Feel free to drop in the tailgate, have a hot dog and a soda, and drop any amount you feel you can spare in our donation box that will be located on our main table under our tent.
If you cannot make the game this Saturday to contribute, you can send your donation to us via Pay-Pal.com. Simply go to www.paypal.com, and make any size donation by sending it to us using our E mail address of SpartanThunder@hotmail.com
It is our goal to raise a minimum of $2,000 dollars, and once that goal is achieved we will submit our donation to the Red Cross for "Thunder Aid" distribution.
Also, any order recieved for a SpartanThunder.com T shirt at the tailgate will also aid those in need of assistance in the greater New Orleans metro area.
We are going to take 50% of the T shirt sales and donate it to the Red Cross as well.
Once we receive a letter of receipt from the Red Cross, we will post it to our front page.
Thank you for your generosity in advance.
