100 as One Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

http://100blackmenhou.org/harvey/

The 100 Black Men of Metropolitan Houston, Emerging 100 of Houston and the Collegiate 100 of Prairie View A&M University, University of Houston and Texas Southern University are working to help Houstonians impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We are asking our partners and supporters to help us help Houston.

This storm has generated an amount of rain that would normally be seen only once in more than 1,000 years and the flooding was so widespread that the levels of city waterways have equaled or surpassed those of Tropical Storm Allison from 2001. Thousands of citizens have been forced to evacuate their homes. Our fellow Houston citizens are suffering and in need of assistance.

We are collecting donations to support Houstonians impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
