Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Fellow Texans,

As we saw Hurricane Harvey devastate our great state this past weekend, I know we watched with fear and horror. It was not easy to watch this storm make landfall and I pray that your friends and families are safe. We know how strong Texas is and we have the ability to unite and help our fellow Texans, after all this is what being a Texan is all about. We are resilient. We are Texas Strong.

 

As the largest Texas-affiliated organization in the Washington, DC area, The Texas State Society is banding together to coordinate relief efforts to help communities who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.
