athletic traning club logoPULLMAN, Wash. – The WSU Athletic Training Club is collecting clothing, money, medical supplies and food this weekend and through Sept. 10 to assist Hurricane Harvey victims.

In conjunction with the WSU vs. Montana State football game and the WSU women’s volleyball tournament, WSU Athletic Training Club members will be walking through the RV lots Friday evening and Saturday morning to pick up donations. Club president Mickey Finch said the donations will be allocated to Texas charities and causes, such as the Houston Independent School District, Direct Relief, and Americares.

Additionally, Pullman residents can contact the club and members will pick up the donations until Sept. 10.

“As athletic training students, our first instinct is to help others in times of need,” Finch said. “We realize that we could use our resources and the great WSU community to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.”
