The Kansas State University community came together to get a truck-load of supplies to hurricane victims in Texas.

Fans stepped up during Saturday's first football game bringing in donations. More arrived Sunday afternoon at the university's intercollegiate rowing center.

K-State worked with people in Houston to request cleaning supplies, from bleach and brooms to garbage bags and face masks. They also collected children's clothing and school supplies.

Student athletes spent Sunday loading it onto the K-State football trailer. Monday, 46,000 pounds of product arrived in Houston, where wildcat alums and volunteers unloaded it.

K-State thanks everyone involved in the effort.
