Fund For Aggies Affected By Hurricane Harvey

We are announcing a student and employee
disaster relief fund to help with small-but-essential, one-time
immediate needs. We are calling on the power of the Aggie Network
to assist by contributing to the fund to help fellow Aggies.
With approximately 45 percent – or more than 31,000 members of
our student body – coming from one of the counties affected by
Hurricane Harvey, many students arrived for classes with literally
just the clothes on their backs after wading through waist-deep
water in their hometowns to get here. Many faculty and staff
working to bring normalcy to the start of the school year have done
so while dealing with personal hardship themselves.
Your donation can help buy clothes, replace textbooks lost in
flooding, and other one-time essentials.
We have collaborated with the Texas A&M Foundation to ensure
that all funds are tracked appropriately. Our team will be
responsible for assessing needs and providing direct help.
To donate, go to: Texas A&M

Thank you all! We are the Aggies. The Aggies are we!
