WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Just over a week ago the Bahamas was hit by a catastrophic hurricane that affected the lives of many.
Purdue University has made it its mission to provide them with supplies.

The donation drive will be held this weekend, during Saturday nights football game against Texas Christian University.

Purdue University Head Track and Field Coach, Norbert Elliott says the supplies will be going directly to victims that have suffered from Hurricane Dorian.
"Their lives have been completely destroyed and interrupted. So, any help that they can get is meaningful help," said Elliott.

Elliott was raised in the Bahamas and has traveled back to give out supplies to victims.
Elliott, says every donation will count.

"We're just so fortunate over here, and we take the little things for granted. When you've lost literally everything- but the clothes on your back anything will help," added Elliott.

Purdue says Items they are in great need of is baby formula, first aid kits, and much more.

Locations you may drop supplies off at are Gate B, Gate T-2, the pavilion entrance, Boilermaker crossing on Weist Plaza and the North end of the stadium on Joe Tiller Drive.
