War Hawk Athletics doing its part to help Hurricane Harvey relief efforts


ABILENE, Texas - The clean-up effort after Hurricane Harvey continues in Southeast Texas, and this week, the McMurry War Hawks are taking matters into their own hands to help pitch in.

Monday night, student-athletes gathered for the annual athletics department ice cream social, and with it, each member brought in and donated cleaning items to be sent to the Houston area.

In what they're calling "flood buckets".

Over 50 student athletes were effected by Harvey in some way, many being from the affected areas.

McMurry Athletics also plans on donating every dollar towards its admission for the September 16th football home opener against Howard Payne to Harvey relief efforts.
