Enterprise-Ozark Community College baseball player Brent Ubre and three of his teammates are from the New Orleans area.
The players "passed the hat" last week in classrooms across the EOCC campus.
They presented Coffee County Red Cross representatives more than $1,600 in contributions for the victims of Katrina.
Although their families are okay, they have many friends who are without homes due to the storm.
Baseball player, Brent Ubre, says, "Everyone has been tremendous, even though they are not from here, they see it on TV, it affects you … we got it started."
The players say they will continue to support efforts to raise money for the Katrina victims in their home state of Louisiana and neighboring Mississippi.
