Coogs Care: Students Help With Harvey Recovery

UH Students Volunteer at BBVA Compass Stadium

After Harvey devastated the Houston region and beyond, leaving tens of thousands of people without homes or vehicles, a group of UH students formed their own ride sharing program to shuttle student volunteers to and from BBVA Compass Stadium.

UH student Katherine Corrigan and her friends put the call out on social media for volunteers and the response was overwhelming.

"It honestly just blew up and became such a huge inspiration to a lot of Coogs on campus," said Corrigan.

With working vehicles untouched by Harvey's wrath, the team of volunteers drove their fellow students to the soccer stadium east of downtown where supplies and donations were being collected and sorted. 

"We just wanted to give people a way to help out because I know that they wanted to," she said.
