BYU FANS GIVE $20,000 FOR HURRICANE RELIEF

Brigham Young University football fans donated more than $20,000 to the United Way/Red Cross Relief Fund to aid victims of last month's Hurricane Andrew in the Florida/Louisiana areas.

The effort was a joint project by the Brigham Young University Student Association and the BYU Athletic Department.BYUSA students helped collect donations from the crowd before, during and after Thursday night's game against San Diego State.

United Way and Red Cross staff and volunteers, assisted by BYUSA, helped make the evening a success.

Tellers from Zions Bank assisted throughout the game tallying the evening's donations.

All funds will be sent directly to the relief efforts in the Florida area. Donations are still being received at the Red Cross office in Provo.
