UofSC takes donations for Texas hurricane victims

As Gamecocks, we stand with those affected by Hurricane Harvey’s devastation, knowing all too well the hardship of historic flooding. In conjunction with the Columbia mayor’s office, City Council and a citywide relief effort, the University of South Carolina and Gamecock Athletics will be collecting items to send to the hurricane victims in Texas. The following donations will be accepted:

  • Cleaning supplies (bleach, bleach wipes, mops, gloves, clean rags)
  • Personal hygiene products (soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, etc.)

Students, faculty, staff and members of the community can drop off donations at two School of Law locations from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 5 and Wednesday, September 6. 

Look for boxes at the Main Lobby entrance to the Café, and in the locker area at the entrance to the Commons.
