WKU baseball, softball teams combine to aid Alabama relief efforts

4 05 2011

Per WKU:

The WKU baseball and softball teams will host drop-off locations this Saturday for victims of the devastating tornadoes that went through Alabama last week. Drop-off locations will be available Saturday at Nick Denes Field and the WKU Softball Complex during the 12 p.m. baseball game against Florida Atlantic and the doubleheader softball game against Middle Tennessee at 1 and 3 p.m.

Donations will be taken up at the front gates of both the baseball and softball games. Those items will be delivered to the American Red Cross of Alabama and distributed to the towns in Alabama that are in need. A monetary donation bucket will also be available at the games.

Items victims are in need of are:

Bottled Water/ Gatorade
Non-perishable food items
New or gently used clothing (all sizes)
Shoes (all sizes)
Work Gloves
Personal hygiene products (toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, feminine hygiene products, shampoo, brushes, etc.)
Batteries (C & D)
Bug spray
Sun screen
Baby food
Baby formula
Pet food
School Supplies

We are asking all fans to help donate to a great cause. Head softball coach Tyra Perry and assistant softball coach Beth Mullins volunteered their time Monday after their road trip to Lafayette, La., in helping families sort through belongings and clean up houses destroyed in Alabama by the tornadoes. We are hoping to do our part in helping victims in need.
