LOGAN, UT— Reminderband, the leader in silicone wristbands, announces its donation of 5,000 wristbands to Utah State University in remembrance of the eight students and one instructor from the College of Agriculture that died in a 15-passenger van accident Monday, Sept. 26.
“When we heard about the accident we wanted to help in some way so we are donating bands to support those who have been affected by this tragedy,” said Clay Broadbent, Reminderband partner.
The wristbands will be a tri-colored band including the Aggie “A” and the trademark university colors of blue and white with the third color maize, which is the official color for the College of Agriculture. The wristbands say “Always Remember” for those who want to show their remembrance and support to the nine killed and their families and friends left behind.
“The funds raised from selling the wristbands will go to the Agriculture Technology Fellowship Fund,” said Kent Clark, Utah State University Director Corporate Foundations and Relations.
The wristbands will be available at Utah State University and can be seen as soon as the end of this week or the beginning of next week.
“We hope these wristbands are more than just an outlet for fund-raising,” said Broadbent. “We see them as a way to bring unity and remembrance to those affected by this tragedy.”
Reminderband supports other causes throughout the country and hopes to generate support for the families and those affected by this tragedy.
