Texas Rotary district collects emergency funds for Hurricane Harvey victims
Rotary clubs in District 5930 (Texas, USA) are collecting emergency relief funds to help flood victims of Hurricane Harvey, which slammed into southeast Texas over the weekend.
Severe rainfall has caused historic flooding along the Texas coast, including in Houston, the fourth largest city by population in the United States. Deluged towns in the region are in desperate need of aid as thousands of residents were forced to flee their homes. About 6.8 million people have been affected by the hurricane, which made landfall on 25 August.
District 5930 has partnered with the nonprofit McAllen North Rotary Fund to set up an emergency relief fund. To help, please send checks and gift cards to:
