Auburn, Ala. (EETV)- The 3,100 miles traveled by Hurricane Harvey and its remnant is quickly being followed by Hurricane Irma which is projected to cause equal damage in The United States.

Irma is forecast to begin impacting Florida as a devastating hurricane by Saturday.

 Auburn University Students refuse to remain idle in the midst of this Hurricane Season as they are working hard in the field of Hurricane Relief.

Campus Involvement, Religious organizations, and a few passionate individuals are taking big strides in extending The Auburn Family to the Texas Area.

Sophomore Honor Society Lambda Sigma is participating in a “T-shirts for Texas Campaign”. Lambda Sigma Member Laura Davenport shared with her social sorority, “I couldn't imagine losing everything I have, and giving a few old t-shirts is the least we can do to help out so many whose lives have been completely devastated by Hurricane Harvey.”

Collaborations continue as on Tuesday, September 5th, Ross House Coffee held a benefit night dedicated to prayer and worship. Auburn University Junior Emily Johnson shared, “It was amazing to see 50-60 college students come together by not only worshiping, but also by donating a total of $650 towards hurricane relief efforts. This shows us that Auburn students have such a heart for not only our own community, but communities all over the country.”

Other groups such as The Office of Student Involvement and Auburn Community Church have also helped by providing man power, monetary donations and tools.

Johnson continues to share Auburn’s heart as a whole for the Hurricane victims as she expresses, “We, as Auburn students, fulfilled the meaning of the Auburn Creed where it says, "I can best serve [our] country by 'doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God.'" Because of the way these students came together in such a time as this, by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with [our] God," I truly believe in Auburn and love it.”
