ways to assist with relief efforts
Many students, faculty and staff members at Texas A&M University are in need of quick-fund, small grants to help them pay for immediate needs in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. In response to the ongoing reports from employees and students who have been heavily impacted by Harvey, we have created a disaster relief program to help identify and meet the rising needs of our Aggie family. Your donation can help buy clothes, replace textbooks lost in flooding and other one-time essentials.
2) An Online Forum Brings Aggies Together in Harvey's Wake
The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M Foundation have partnered with TexAgs to create an online forum to help facilitate communication among Aggies in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Aggies can visit tx.ag/HarveySupport to post if they either need assistance or have assistance to offer.
Due to the outpouring of support from the Aggie community, Texas A&M University at Galveston has partnered with The Texas A&M Foundation to channel donations to help our students, staff and faculty who have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Anyone who would like to donate can give online to the TAMUG Hurricane Relief Fund. Your gifts will help support immediate needs, such as housing, food, clothing, transportation, and other services. One hundred percent of donations to the TAMUG Hurricane Relief Fund will be used to help our Aggie community.
The Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team (VET), arguably the largest, most sophisticated veterinary emergency response team in the nation, deployed to the area the day before Hurricane Harvey hit and is assisting in caring for animals in need. This includes the search and rescue dogs themselves, as well as pets, horses, cattle, and other livestock that are injured or separated from their owners. With the help of the Texas A&M Foundation, the Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Disaster Fund was established to accept contributions that will be used to assist in response and relief operations as well as to offset medical and other costs that arise after a disaster with significant veterinary impact.
Many students at the Texas A&M Health Science Center – to include the College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Nursing, College of Pharmacy and the School of Public Health – are in need of quick-fund, small grants to help them pay for immediate needs in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. This fund will help some medical students for example, who are selflessly serving in clinical work in Houston area hospitals after themselves losing cars, housing, clothing and other property in the flooding.
Driven by selfless service, BTHO Harvey is a network that connects current students, former students, and other members of the Texas A&M community in a effort to provide both immediate and long term relief those devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
