`Standing for America’ shirts will remain for sale this week
Organizers of the Red, White and Blue Out project will continue selling “Standing For America” shirts to raise money for the families of victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on Washington, D.C., and New York City.
The red, white and blue T-shirts were worn at the Sept. 22 A&M-Oklahoma State game at Kyle Field.
Eric Bethea, a RWB Out organizer and a junior finance major, said T-shirt requests from outside the College Station area can be made using the following link: http://www.logocenter.com. T-shirt prices for out-of-town orders will be $7 plus shipping and handling. Shirts sized XXL will cost $9 plus shipping and handling. The Arlington-based company LogoCenter.com will distribute the shirts.
T-shirts can be ordered in the College Station area through Oct. 10 by email at [email protected]. Name, phone number, size and color of shirts desired must be included in the email. Shirts sold in Bryan-College Station will remain at $5.
College Station printers C&C Creations will produce the shirts to be sold locally.
A portion of all sales will benefit the New York Firefighters 911 Relief Fund and the World Trade Center Police Disaster Relief Fund.
Bethea said future fundraising might come from the sale of posters, which will include aerial photos of Kyle Field from the Sept. 22 game, in which third deck fans wore red, second deck fans wore white and first deck fans wore blue. For updates, check the RWB Out Website at www.jaredp.com.
