Help the most vulnerable in Texas devastated by Hurricane Harvey.  
Our hearts go out to all affected by the floods in Texas. Our eyes stare in disbelief at the utter devastation that has ravaged Rockport, Houston and other areas of Southeast Texas. And still there is more damage to come, more suffering that will have to be endured. 
What is needed most now are generous financial contributions to support the efforts of all the individuals and agencies that have joined together to provide immediate assistance on the long road to recovery in Texas. Be assured that 100 percent of your contribution will go directly to support the vitally needed supplies, services and financial assistance that will be provided to the flood victims.
