Harvey Relief Efforts

Hurricane Harvey sent blistering winds and dumped feet of rain over the Texas coast leaving destroyed buildings and homes in its path. Houston, the nation's fourth largest city, faces catastrophic flooding. It is expected to cost billions of dollars to recover.

There are many organizations to donate to at this time; here are two we are suggesting as donations are devoted solely to providing funds to people and members in our area:

Greater Houston Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

TSAFF Harvey Relief Fund

Mission Statement
