Florida State University doesn't cancel the game but asks fans to lend a hand


LINK TO WEBSITE HERE

Florida State University is rallying to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, and is asking fans coming to Monday's football game against Miami to lend a hand.

With hotel space at a premium this weekend as hurricane refugees seek shelter, FSU is asking local FSU friends and families to open their doors to old friends from out of town. If you're coming to the game from out of town, FSU asks that you consider staying with FSU friends who live in or around Tallahassee. This could free up much-needed hotel space.

In addition, if your plans change, and you're not coming to the game or you're staying with friends, FSU asks that you cancel your hotel reservations immediately to ensure that your room is available for hurricane victims.

With your help, hotels will have additional rooms available for those who may be looking for a few nights of rest and a warm shower.

FSU is also encouraging generous donations to the American Red Cross. At the game itself, student volunteers will be at the gates collecting contributions for the American Red Cross. The university will also display phone numbers for phone-in contributions.

If you can't contribute at the game, you can give to the American Red Cross online through the everythingFSU Web site (www.fsu.com) or call 1-800-HELP-NOW.

FSU also urges all fans to conserve gasoline by sharing a ride to the game.

FSU President T.K. Wetherell says, "If fans join together, and use this game as an opportunity to mount a relief effort, the Florida State community can make a real difference in the lives of people who are truly suffering."
