Wow! What a flood! Remember how the DKG Emergency Fund helped us after Hurricane Sandy? We certainly want that fund to help those devastated by Harvey.
We (Alpha Zeta State) have reached out to the state president of Texas. Theta chapter will be responsible for collecting at the state meeting so that we can make a donation to the Emergency Fund. Please do not send "stuff" to Texas unless you are sending it to someone specific who has asked for it. They wind up with piles of "stuff" there is no where to store and no way to distribute. Money is always good :), but make sure you are sending it to a reputable relief agency or to the DKG Emergency Fund.
From the dkg.org website:
Based on the number of calls and emails we have received at DKG Headquarters, we want to remind all members that contributions to the DKG Emergency Fund will help members impacted by Hurricane Harvey… as well as those with damage from other natural disasters.
To contribute to the Emergency Fund by credit card, go to https://www.dkg.org/DKGDONATE/DKGDONATE/Donate_to_DKG.aspx and click on “Emergency Fund.”
If you would prefer to make a donation by check, please download Form-43. Mail this form with your check to the address listed on Form-43. As additional information becomes available about how best to help chapters and members as they recover from the hurricane, Headquarters personnel will spread the word and help make the connections that so well illustrate the spirit of DKG.
