Texas A&M Athletics is encouraging fans to purchase and wear white #BTHOharvey shirts to Saturday's game against Nicholls State at 6 p.m. in an effort to 'Relief Out' Kyle Field.
A&M Athletics has partnered with Maroon Out and CC Creations to market the shirts as a fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
"We are encouraging all current students, former students, and fans of Aggie football to wear their #BTHOharvey shirt to the Nicholls State game this Saturday," said Head Maroon Out Director Hannah Gallagher '18. "This 'Relief Out' is a powerful symbol of unity and a visible statement that will show the world that Texas A&M is standing with those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey and pledging our support. With your help, we can BTHOharvey and 'Relief Out' Kyle Field!"
The #BTHOharvey T-shirt sale is part of an initiative originally developed from an idea by Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin, who sought to show support and solidarity with the people of the Gulf Coast.
The shirts, which are sold for $10, feature the outline of the state of Texas over the universal symbol for a hurricane. A red heart is over the Gulf Coast region.
On-campus purchases can be made at the Coach Jackie Sherrill Lettermen's Club in Kyle Field from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, at the Maroon Out On-Campus Kickoff Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and at Koldus 110-111 four hours prior to kickoff against Nicholls State on Sept. 9.
The shirts are also available in-store at The Warehouse at C.C. Creations in College Station and online. Fans that plan to purchase shirts prior to the game are encouraged to purchase in-store or on campus.
The sale of every shirt supports BTHOharvey, a student-led relief initiative at Texas A&M University sponsored by Maroon Out and Class Councils that is supported by more than 150 student organizations on the A&M campus.
