When Indians’ athletics teams received a message from University of Houston basketball coach Kelvin Sampson asking for help for Houston residents affected by Hurricane Harvey, they didn’t hesitate.

They boxed up the t-shirts that Sampson asked for and immediately shipped them out.

 “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 t-shirts 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,” Coach Kelvin Sampson said in his message.  
If you would like to provide T-shirts and/or shoes to those in Houston, you can send them to: Coach Kelvin Sampson, University of Houston Basketball, Guy V. Lewis Development Center, 3480 Cullen Blvd, Houston, Texas  77204.
