SC Methodists sending supplies to Hurricane Harvey victims
Coastal Carolina University student athletes will personally deliver your donations to Texas.
The school announced Monday that it’s collecting money, toiletries and cleaning supplies.
Coastal will take in donations at Arcadia Hall, located at 132 Chanticleer Dr. West in Conway, according to a new release.
Donations will also be accepted at Springs Brooks Stadium during the football team’s season opener on Saturday.
Drop-off locations are at the Victory Bell next to the stadium and the alumni tailgate at Blanton Park.
A truck from Lewis Truck Lines will carry the goods to Houston.
Cari Rosiek, Coastal Carolina University’s associate athletic director for student-athlete enhancement, said she’s taking some student athletes down to Houston to deliver the goods personally.
“The trailer will sit in Brooks stadium for at least the next two weeks until we know we can safely get into Houston,” she said.
The school collected donations last year for flood victims in Louisiana, said Rosiek.
“Upon notification of the hurricane hitting and seeing the devastation on the news I had several student athletes asking if we could do the project again,” she said. “I think our student athletes see a lot of value in it.”

Clothing and furniture will not be accepted.
