LUBBOCK – In case they needed another excuse to wear red on game day, Texas Tech students are encouraged to participate in this week’s “Wear Your RaiderAid T-Shirt to the Game Day” at the Texas Tech vs. Kansas football game on Saturday, Oct. 1.

The event, sponsored by Texas Tech’s Hurricane Relief Committee, will allow Texas Tech students, faculty and staff to show support for the hurricane relief initiative.

“Students will have the opportunity to show support for both the victims of the hurricanes and for Texas Tech by taking part in this,” said Student Government Association President Nathan Nash. “Students at Texas Tech and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center have made a tremendous effort to help during these difficult times, and this is a way for them to show pride in what they’ve done.”

The shirts are given to those who make a $10 donation benefiting the Red Cross. They will continue to be available at the Student Union Building information desk, and at the Student Services office at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

On game day, shirts will be available at Raider Alley and Raidergate before the 6 p.m. game.
