Beginning tonight, fans are encouraged to donate items at Minute Maid Park to aid the relief efforts for the residents of West, TX, affected by the explosion at the fertilizer plant. The team will be collecting the following items, which have been the most requested by the coordinated relief effort: new diapers/wipes, gift cards for grocery stores or home supply stores, travel size toiletries, powdered sports drinks, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, non-perishable canned or boxed food items, clean sheets and towels (new or gently used) and unopened boxed or bagged dog and cat food. Cash donations will also be accepted and will be directed to the ongoing relief efforts.
