ECU students collecting for hurricane relief this weekend

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - An ECU student group is asking for the community to drop off goods for hurricane relief this weekend.

The Student Leadership Board of ECU is holding a fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Irma in Florida.

Friday, there is an ECU football equipment 18-wheeler located in the lower lot of Minges Coliseum.

They are asking for people to drop off canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta and peanut butter to that location or other designated areas around the campus.

ECU alumni David Bond has agreed to match donations dollar for dollar up to $10,000 to purchase canned food and other hurricane relief supplies.
