South Carolina donates to LSU, flood victims

Last season, it was LSU that pulled out all of the stops and assisted South Carolina after flooding forced the game to be moved from the Gamecocks’ home field. Now, the Gamecocks are providing some favors in return.

On Tuesday, it was announced that South Carolina is set to collect donations at multiple spots on campus that will then be sent to the families impacted by the flooding in Baton Rouge.

“LSU was so gracious to assist us in our time of need,” South Carolina president Harris Pastides said in a statement. “Now it is our turn to help our SEC friends. I encourage all Gamecocks to drop off items needed for the Baton Rouge flood relief.”

From the release:

Items in need from the Baton Rouge community include the following: baby and adult diapers, baby formula, canned foods (with pop tops), foods in plastic containers such as peanut butter and jelly, individually packaged crackers, snacks and breakfast bars, multi-packaged cereal, new and unopened socks, underwear, towels and blankets.

It is always great to see communities coming together to help those in need. After the assistance LSU provided a season ago, it’s even greater to see the Gamecocks family returning the favor.

If you are near the South Carolina campus and would like to contribute, a full list of drop off spots and collection locations can be seen here.
