It’s been a tough time in Texas recently as Hurricane Harvey made its path through the state, leaving behind destruction. But Texas A&M is making a gesture to try to make the time somewhat better for those that have been affected.
Texas A&M is offering free tickets to its first two home games of the season — Sept. 9 vs. Nicholls State and Sept. 16 vs. Lousiana-Lafayette — to victims, first responders, volunteers and others that have offered aid in Hurricane Harvey recovery.
“Texas A&M University has always stood ready to help when called upon, and the events in Texas and the Gulf Coast present another opportunity for us to lend a hand,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Scott Woodward said in a press release. “We want to provide a brief reprieve to all of those affected by this tragedy, as well as extend an expression of gratitude to all of the first responders and volunteers that are working so hard to help the region return to normalcy.”
The free tickets will be available while supplies last.
