Sooners partner with United Way, Team FanShop to support disaster relief effort.
NORMAN, Okla. --
The University of Oklahoma, its online commerce partner, Team FanShop, and the United Way have teamed up for a second straight year to lend assistance to agencies providing relief following a spring storm outbreak across Oklahoma.
After severe weather impacted areas throughout the state on April 13, the University of Oklahoma once again implemented a collaborative effort in which the net proceeds will be donated to the United Way to benefit affected Oklahomans.
T-shirts featuring "2012 Relief Efforts - Oklahoma Helping Oklahomans" are currently available in the OU Online Store
. The shirt, manufactured by Box Seat Clothing Co., may be purchased for $19.95 (men's) and $21.95 (women's) with a flat-rate $4.99 shipping fee for any quantity ordered.
The United Way works directly with agencies such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army that have been providing round-the-clock assistance to Oklahomans in need. Services provided include opening and operating shelters, case management for those experiencing loss, mobile feeding sites for those working in disaster-affected areas, and more.
Disaster relief efforts are provided free of charge and are entirely supported by financial contributions. The University of Oklahoma and Team FanShop are proud to once again assist in these efforts to aid our fellow Oklahomans.
