October 2017: Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Update

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Update

 

Dear HSC Family:

With the initial shock and crisis of Hurricane Harvey behind us, we now face a monumental task of rebuilding so much of what impacts our daily lives as members of the Texas A&M Health Science Center.  We all stand united in the work, help and support needed to do so.

We have established a HSC Disaster Assistance Committee which is charged with distributing funds received in our HSC Disaster Relief Fund at the Texas A&M Foundation.  Designed to provide a small cash assistance gift for faculty, staff or students who were directly impacted by Harvey, the committee will accept applications for assistance and provide awards as funds allow.  Representatives from the HSC, Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry and the School of Public Health are participating.

In order to expedite getting the gifts into the hands of those who have need, please complete the form and submit it online for their review. Here is the link to the form:                                                              https://www.tamhsc.edu/harvey-relief/harvey-relief-fund-form.html    

If needed, you may print the attached form, complete it then scan and email it.

Also, if you, or others you know, would like to contribute to this fund, please visit:          http://today.tamu.edu/2017/09/05/hurricane-harvey-relief/

It is our hope that individuals will be helped by the generosity of so many.

My thoughts and prayers for all continue during the weeks and months of recovery.
