The outpouring of support by those in the state of Texas to help the city of Houston has been incredible. After being pummeled by record rainfall following Hurricane Harvey, a number of organizations, shelters and public event spaces have come to the aid of those displaced by the storm.
Baylor appears intent on doing its bit as well.
On Tuesday, the school announced that it would be offering those affected by the storm free tickets, parking passes, and dinner for those in attendance. They announced the offer via a statement on their website.
The Baylor Bears open their season against Liberty at McLane Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 2. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET. A link on the released statement allows fans to request up to eight tickets at once.
The complimentary meal will be provided at the Baylor Sports Network Tent.
To some, it might seem like Baylor is trying to fill the stadium in a game that might otherwise draw little attention. That may very well but true. However, it doesn’t detract from the gesture as a whole. They’re offering free entertainment and a hot meal to people who have lost many of their personal belongings at the very least.
Baylor isn’t totally fixing the problem, but they’re doing what they can to help.
