UT Republicans and Democrats Work Together for Hurricane Relief

By Katie Naranjo

Members from the University Democrats and the College Republicans met today to work on a bi-partisan effort to raise money for hurricane victims in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. All monetary and food/toiletry donations collected will be given directly to the Red Cross. The two groups have made an agreement to come together to show students at the University of Texas that aiding fellow Americans is above partisan feelings.

If you would like to get involved and donate money or physical products please contact Alex Hunt (U-Dems president) at president@udems.org.

Just so y'all will know, 100% of every donation made to the TDP for the rest of this week will be going to the American Red Cross to help assist Hurricane Katrina's victims.

I couldn't help but notice that the website of the Texas Democratic Party now seems devoted to helping with hurricane relief efforts, while the website of the Texas Republican Party doesn't mention the hurricane and is focused on bashing Democrats over the Roberts SC confirmation.
