FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- Razorback Athletics and the University of Arkansas Student-Athlete Advisory Committee are partnering with 5NEWS and the Northwest Arkansas Mall to host a Razorback Relief event to benefit those impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Members of the Razorback football team, student-athletes with other Razorback programs and members of the spirit squads will be collecting items for victims of the hurricane on Friday (Sept. 15) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Northwest Arkansas Mall. They will collect items at the southeast corner of the mall parking lot near the flag pole in front of Sears.

Truck Centers of Arkansas donated a truck, and J.B. Hunt Transport has provided drivers to deliver the items to Florida.

The drive will be accepting:

  • Bottled Water
  • Canned Goods
  • Toiletries
  • Diapers
  • Dog Food

Cash donations will not be accepted, and those wishing to contribute financial support are encouraged to contact other relief agencies.
