Last fall, Louisiana State University (LSU) reached out to University of South Carolina (USC) when their state had epic floods, offering them space and transferring their home stadium into USC’s home stadium. Now USC has decided to return the favor as Louisiana faces historical flooding that has killed 13 people:

“LSU was so gracious to assist us in our time of need,” South Carolina president Harris Pastides said in a statement. “Now it is our turn to help our SEC friends. I encourage all Gamecocks to drop off items needed for the Baton Rouge flood relief.”

The university encouraged locals to bring food and sanitary items along with basic clothing items and towels and blankets.

So many people responded that the university has to send TWO full trucks to Baton Rouge.

LSU expressed their gratitude on Twitter:

Officials decided to use the LSU campus as a “staging area for relief efforts” in Baton Rouge.

The LSU football team and other athletic teams have done all they can to help the flood victims:

The University of Louisiana-Lafayette football team also lent a hand to flood victims.
