UT Co-op Selling T-Shirts to Support Victims of Bastrop Fire

The University Co-op has begun selling two new T-shirts, the proceeds of which they will donate to the Red Cross and the victims of the devastating Bastrop fire.

The shirts that read, “I [heart] Bastrop” and “I’m a BFD Supporter,” go for $9.99 and went on sale today online and at the Co-op’s physical stores. The shirts will be for sale all week.

The “relief tees” are part of a larger donation drive organized by UT’s Senate of College Councils and the Co-op. UT’s Division of Housing and Food Service is also collaborating on a supply drive. Donation bins will be located at residence halls throughout campus as well as the Co-op for those wanting to donate clothes, school supplies, toiletries, and other items.

All donations will go to the American Red Cross. The fire has burned some 35,000 acres, including 1,400 homes, and the area has been declared a major disaster area.
