NSU to send team to Texas

Local

Northwestern State University is putting together a team of students, faculty and staff volunteers to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and southeast Texas.

“We in Louisiana are all too aware of how devastating a flood can be and the one in Houston is catastrophic,” said Dr. Curt Phifer, a professor of biology at NSU who is organizing the relief initiative.  “Last year, people from all over the U.S. came to Louisiana to help flood victims in the Denham Springs and Baton Rouge area and just over 10 years ago, teams came to help Louisianans affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  This is our chance to return the favor.”

A flood relief group will travel to Houston or nearby areas Friday, Sept. 1 to work with relief agencies through the weekend.  All students, faculty and staff are invited.  Volunteers must provide their own transportation to be part of an organized car pool.  Phifer is working to arrange for tools, housing and meals but volunteers may need to bring an air mattress, sleeping bag, sheets and towels. More details will be available as plans are finalized.

Anyone who would like to contribute to the team’s expenses for food, gas, globes and supplies can donate through the NSU Foundation in the care of the Disaster Relief Fund or by bringing donations directly to the NSU Alumni Center on University Parkway. 

For more information on participating in the relief effort, contact Phifer at phifer@nsula.edu. The link to NSU’s Disaster Relief page is northwesternalumni.com/donations/nsu-disaster-relief-fund.
