Red Cross To Take Donations At Tiger Stadium
Devastating flooding across parts of South Carolina are the reason fans across Louisiana will enjoy an unexpected football Saturday at Tiger Stadium today. The fact that so many are suffering at the hands of a natural disaster has led many people to ask how can we help those in need. The Red Cross is usually a pretty good answer any time you ask that question.
Tiger fans and residents of Baton Rouge have been trying to show support for the people of South Carolina this week. Since the game was originally set to be played in Columbia and moved to Baton Rouge because of the flooding.
Nancy Malone with the Louisiana Red Cross says Louisiana residents have always been supportive of helping those affected by natural disasters. It's probably because we've been on the receiving end of that help so many times. She tells the Louisiana Radio Network how you can help at the game today.
We're a caring group down here in Louisiana and everybody wants to help. So this is an easy way to do it. You can write out your check in advance, make it out to the American Red Cross and note South Carolina floods on it so we can get it directly to them.
The Red Cross will have donation sites and vehicles situated around Tiger Stadium today. If you feel motivated to reach into your wallet and help make a difference this would be a great way to accomplish that.
Game time for today's LSU versus South Carolina football game will be at 2:30. The game will be televised on ESPN.
