Athletics: Ragin' Cajuns Plan Supply Drive for McNeese State and Surrounding Communities

University, AmeriCorps service group and Department of Athletics organize relief efforts

LAFAYETTE - From Tuesday to Thursday (Sept. 1-3), the University, AmeriCorps community service program and Department of Athletics will be collecting donations at Cajun Field to benefit those impacted by Hurricane Laura at McNeese State and its surrounding communities.

Local Acadiana residents interested in making donations are asked to give the following suggested items: bottled water (singular bottles or jugs), bottled sports drinks, dry/non-perishable foods that include canned or boxed items, cleaning supplies (rags, cloths, sponges, mops, gloves, trash bags, tarps) and personal care items (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, feminine hygiene products, diapers and wipes).

Opportunities to make donations this coming week at the Cajun Field parking lot will run from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., with Ragin' Cajuns student-athletes, AmeriCorps volunteers and students manning the area to assist in a safe, contact-free drop-off process.

Vehicles are asked to approach the parking lot from Gate 5 adjacent to Cajundome Blvd. and will exit onto Congress Street at Gate 4.

Those interested in donating clothing or bedding are asked to make those donations at any Goodwill of Acadiana location or Salvation Army Thrift Store.

Gathered relief supplies will be transported to Lake Charles, Louisiana, inside the football program's equipment truck on Saturday, Sept. 5, and student-athletes will unload the supplies at a designated location with McNeese State's campus.
