Victims of Hurricane Harvey Need Our Help

August 29, 2017

Tropical Storm Harvey continues to threaten lives and property in Texas and Louisiana. Harvey hit the Gulf Coast as a category three hurricane over the weekend and the slow-moving storm is expected to continue for the next several days with more devastating rains and flood waters.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced that the State has deployed a C-130H cargo plane and eight Airmen from the 103rd Airlift Wing of the Connecticut National Guard to help with Hurricane Harvey response and recovery efforts in Texas.

Residents affected by Harvey need our help with food, water, medicine, temporary shelter and other support. I hope you will consider making a small donation to one of these emergency relief organizations so that the people affected by this massive storm know we in Connecticut are with them in heart, mind and spirit.
