Vanderbilt wants to help the people of Columbia, S.C., who have been affected by devastating flooding.
The Commodores football program’s official Twitter feed (@VandyFootball) posted a photo of the team’s equipment truck with the program’s Anchor Down motto on the side: “The Goal – have this truck loaded with bottled water enroute to Columbia Friday AM. Drop off cases Thursday 7am-7pm.”
There will be drop-off locations available at Gate 2 of Vanderbilt Stadium at the corner of Natchez Trace and Jess Nelly Drive and in front of the McGugin Center. There will be collections for cases of bottled water and new generators. Student athletes and staff members will be on hand to help with collecting donations and loading them into the truck.
The feed noted that people in Nashville needed help in 2010 because of massive flooding, and now they want Vanderbilt to help the people of South Carolina in their time of need.
This is another example of the wealth of SEC pride being put to great use.
Those looking to make monetary contributions can do so through the Red Cross by donating online at www.redcross.org/southcarolina, or by texting REDCROSS to 90999. Contributions may also be sent to P.O. Box 9035, Greenville, SC 29604.
