Parting Shot: Hurricane Harvey relief

UNT athletics headed to Houston in September to deliver relief supplies from the Mean Green Nation to those recovering from Hurricane Harvey. Alum and former football player Jim McIngvale, also known as "Mattress Mack," sent out the call for donations after opening his furniture stores to evacuees and sending out delivery trucks to rescue them. His generosity was covered by the CBS Evening News, CNN, The New York Times, Time and many others. Photos by Michael Clements.
