In response to the devastating flooding in Baton Rouge and surrounding area's, the South Carolina Gamecock community will be sending items to LSU to assist flood victims.

South Carolina encourages people to bring items to the following locations, according to GamecocksOnline.com:
quote:

Wednesday: Bi-Lo (4464 Devine Street, Columbia, SC 29205) [9 am – 1 pm] Williams-Brice Stadium (Bluff Road Area) [2 pm – 7 pm] – Open Football Practice (6:30 pm)

Thursday: Bi-Lo (4464 Devine Street, Columbia, SC 29205) [9 am – 1 pm] Rice Athletics Center/Carolina Soccer Center (Heyward & Marion Streets) [2 pm – 8 pm] – Men’s Soccer Game vs. Winthrop (7 p.m.) My Carolina Alumni Association (900 Senate Street) [5 pm – 7 pm] – Fall Sports Preview Party (6 pm)

Friday: Bi-Lo (4464 Devine Street, Columbia, SC 29205 [9 am-6 pm]

Items in need from the Baton Rouge community include the following: baby and adult diapers, baby formula, canned foods (with pop tops), foods in plastic containers such as peanut butter and jelly, individually packaged crackers, snacks and breakfast bars, multi-packaged cereal, new and unopened socks, underwear, towels and blankets.

“LSU was so gracious to assist us in our time of need,” said USC President Harris Pastides. “Now it is our turn to help our SEC friends. I encourage all Gamecocks to drop off items needed for the Baton Rouge flood relief.”

During the historic October floods of 2015, LSU hosted the Gamecocks in a football game originally scheduled for Williams-Brice Stadium on Oct. 10. All net proceeds from the game were given by LSU to South Carolina. Also, following the game, an autographed game-worn jersey from LSU running back Leonard Fournette raised funds for South Carolina flood relief.

“I would like to encourage everyone to donate to help our friends in the Baton Rouge area that need our assistance,” said USC Athletics Director Ray Tanner.
