CHAPEL HILL - In the aftermath of Hurricane Florence and devastating flooding across the state, N.C. High School Athletic Association Commissioner Que Tucker and the association's board of directors have requested that member schools designate a contest or contests during the period Oct. 1-19 for hurricane relief efforts.

Schools are asked to participate by collecting money at any home contest during that time and forwarding that money to the association, which will act as a clearinghouse. All money will be divided and sent to counties that have been designated as disaster areas and were federally approved for individual assistance.

The NCHSAA's board of directors has approved matching funds up to $25,000 to add to the money collected during the drive by schools.

In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, NCHSAA schools - helped by a matching contribution authorized by the NCHSAA board - donated more than $44,000 to school systems in the affected areas. In the case of Hurricane Floyd, the NCHSAA collected donations at statewide regional meetings and also provided a matching donation.
