Bearcats for Texas

The Northwest Missouri State University community is assisting victims of Hurricane Harvey by collecting donations on the campus and at activities throughout the next week.

The "Bearcats for Texas" effort began with the Bearcat football team’s season opener Aug. 31 at Bearcat Stadium, where all fans entering the stadium were invited to make a monetary donation of any kind at donation tables located inside the stadium. 

The campaign has raised $2,443 so far with all donations being distributed through the Northwest Missouri Chapter of the American Red Cross to support hurricane relief.

Northwest will continue accepting donations through Friday, Sept. 8, at the B.D. Owens Library and in the Student Engagement Center, located on the second floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union.

Donation tables also will be stationed at the student organizational fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Memorial Bell Tower and the Bearcat soccer game at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Bearcat Pitch

Interested individuals also may donate $10 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
