     September, 2017, President's Message

Texas Strong – TFRW Strong

      Texas is known for extreme weather. While the summer of 2017 will not be characterized by searing high temperatures, it will be known for Harvey – the CAT 4 hurricane that hit the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25th. The hurricane winds battered Rockport and Corpus Christi initially, but the real beating came to the gulf region in the form of relentless rainfall at 1,000 year flood proportions. The loss of life will be far less but Harvey has eclipsed Katrina in terms of property loss.

      In true Texas fashion, the response to the victims of Harvey has been extreme as well. Support has rapidly flowed to the region in many forms – from needed supplies, reinforcements for first responders to ordinary people showing up in their monster trucks and flat bottom boats to rush in and rescue families from rising waters. Heroes, all of them. Governor Abbott engaged the state and national guards as President Trump gave a disaster declaration allowing resources to flow through FEMA to assist the tens of thousands of people who are now homeless.

      Here in North Texas shelters have opened and the people have overwhelmed the relief organizations with donations of needed items. Some will be used with evacuees here now and the rest is being loaded to trucks for transport down to the affected region that expanded to the Beaumont area and into Louisiana after Harvey doubled back on us.

      Help will be needed for a long time to come. TFRW is receiving gift cards to distribute to victims for immediate use as they begin the daunting task of removing the debris that was once their home and rebuilding. Consider purchasing a gift card – in any amount – from Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart, Target and sending to TFRW for distribution. Mail them to TFRW, 13740 N. Highway 183, Suite J4, Austin, TX 78750-1832. Every little bit helps.

      And just like that, it’s time to ramp up for the 2018 primary – our work is NEVER done!

May God bless you, all -
