Red Raider fans can support Habitat for Humanity and help blackout the Nov. 1 showdown with the University of Texas by purchasing T-shirts from Texas Tech University’s Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils. The councils will sell the T-shirts Oct. 27-31 outside the Student Union Building in an effort to cram Jones AT&T Stadium full of black-clad fans for the televised game, which could feature two top-five teams. Proceeds will go toward raising $45,000 to build a Habitat for Humanity home during Greek Build 2009. Texas Tech’s sororities and fraternities are responsible for raising $15 per member for the spring community service project. Over three days in March, their members will work together to build a house on Greek Circle. The Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils serve as the governing bodies for Texas Tech’s 11 sororities and 23 fraternities, respectively.
