About 10 hours before the University of Miami Hurricanes and the University of Louisville Cardinals face off on the field at the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, fans of both teams will have a chance to connect with each other through an Orlando community service project to benefit victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
The University of Miami, University of Louisville, and Clean the World in Orlando are sponsoring the service project from 9 a.m. until noon at Clean the World’s recycling facility the same day as the Saturday, December 28, bowl game. Volunteers will work with the ONE Project to help assemble hygiene kits for those trying to recover from the deadly disaster. Volunteers must register online to participate.
The Cardinals invited Hurricane students, parents, and alumni to participate in their traditional “pay it forward” event to give back to the community in which the game occurs. The UM service project is a joint effort of UM’s Division of Student Affairs, Department of Athletics, and Alumni Relations.
Clean the World is the largest global recycler of hotel amenities and has launched a global hygiene revolution by saving hotel waste from polluting landfills in the United States and Canada by distributing recycled clean kits to children and families in the United States and around the world.
UM students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni are invited to register to participate in the project, which will be limited to 50 volunteers. Clean the World is located at 400A Pittman Street in Orlando.
