The Texas Gulf Coast is taking a beating. Eighteen Texas counties have been declared disaster areas. Large portions of Texas have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey and the historic flooding that is happening in the aftermath of the storm.
Elks members and Lodges (see map above) throughout the region have been impacted by these ongoing events. The damage is ongoing and the destruction is real. In an effort to help coordinate, prioritize, and distribute our ongoing relief efforts, this page is being set up to assist in that process.
Texas Elks are working with Elks nationwide, Grand Lodge and local government to help those most effected by Hurricane Harvey.
Through your donations and the donations of others, together, we can help those who need us most right now. Please share this GoFundMe link. Whether it is email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or other social media, every dollar collected is a dollar more for those who need it most for food, clothes and shelter. https://www.gofundme.com/elks-harvey-relief
