The North Carolina and N.C. State volleyball teams spent a week of its preseason schedule at the Puerto Rico Clasico in San Juan. The Tarheels and Wolfpack are now doing their part to support the people of the island nation with a hurricane relief drive coinciding with their Oct. 18 match.
The teams are joining forces by encouraging fans to bring clothing, flashlights, first-aid kits, batteries, battery-powered radios, battery-powered fans and bug spray to the match at Carmichael Arena.
“We are honored to have our team initiate this drive on behalf of our two ACC volleyball teams,” UNC head coach Joe Sagula said. “We met so many wonderful people on our trip to Puerto Rico last month and are saddened by all of the devastation that they have endured.
“This is just a small way we can support those in the volleyball community and their families and friends and let them know that we are thinking about them. We want to be able to help any way we can to get our friends back to living their normal, daily lives. We encourage everyone from the North Carolina community to bring a donation to help all of the people who need our support.”
