Coach Kelvin Sampson of the University of Houston basketball team sent the message below to basketball coaches across the nation:
“Many coaches have asked me what they can do to help the people of Houston and I came up with this idea: for all men’s and women’s basketball programs at every level everywhere please send me 20 tshirts and 10 pairs of shoes and we will distribute them to people in need in Houston. If you can’t send that much, send what you can.
“All of our hearts go out to those in need in these devastating times. We will get these goods to agencies that will distribute them to the right people in need. God bless you all. Please continue to keep the people of Houston in your prayers.”
If you would like to help mail T-shirts and/ or shoes to: Coach Kelvin Sampson, University of Houston Basketball, Guy V. Lewis Development Center, 3480 Cullen Blvd, Houston, Texas 77204
