Houston men’s basketball coach Kelvin Sampson is aiding in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, one t-shirt and one pair of shoes at a time. Sampson posted a message on his Twitter account Monday evening, encouraging men’s and women’s basketball programs of any level – from high school to college programs– to send 20 t-shirts and 10 pairs of shoes to Houston.

As of Tuesday morning, his tweet had been retweeted nearly 4,000 times, as athletic communities from across the country responded in full force across sports, state lines and levels of competition, ranging from a middle school team in Houston, to a youth hockey team in Minnesota, to a community college in Oklahoma, to the NBA’s Detroit Pistons.
