Post 14 Members and Friends,
We are all aware of the devastating disaster that took place AND IS taking place in Texas. I just received the following communication from the Texas VFW. I am amazed at the number of vets affected - that we even know about! I immediately made a contribution and suggest you read the letter and let your conscience be your guide. God Bless all these poor folks in and around Houston.
"With the recent catastrophic events from Hurricane Harvey along the Texas coastal bend we have over 26,000+ VFW & Auxiliary members and their families that have been seriously affected. Many are living without power or have been displaced and are in shelters miles from their homes.
The Texas VFW Foundation has established and funded a “Disaster Assistance” program to assist the VFW/Auxiliary members in the affected areas. We also have tens of thousands more veterans that are not members of the VFW/Auxiliary that have also suffered and we are committed to assisting them as well.
Due to the overwhelming destruction in a heavily populated area spanning over 500 miles and the sheer number of veterans affected, those funds will soon be expended. We need your help.
Any donation you, your family, friends, community, Post or District can make will be needed and used specifically for VFW/Auxiliary members and veterans in the affected area who have been seriously affected. You can make your tax deductible donation at Texas VFW or via mail to Texas VFW Foundation - PO Box 14468 - Austin, Texas 78761 Attn: Disaster Assistance. Your donations are needed and will most definitely be used to help those veterans who need it the most in this time of great need.
Thank you in advance for your generous donation of any amount and please share this email with those who you know who would like to assist Texas veterans and their families in their time of need."
