The CU athletic department collected donations Wednesday morning in Boulder for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Tickets were given away to Saturday's home football game against Texas State with a donation.

Donations were accepted Wednesday morning on CU Boulder's east campus near Potts Field.

CU aimed to fill their athletic trailer with donations for transport to the Houston area to help the local Red Cross. Items collected from the community included bottled water, non-perishable food items, hygiene products, cleaning supplies and gently used clothing.
