Hurricane Harvey caused widespread, catastrophic damage throughout Texas and along the Gulf Coast.
Fort Bend County experienced devastating floods with 22 percent of the county impacted by high water and 200,000 residents forced to evacuate. In order to assist with the recovery effort, Fort Bend Forward, a nonprofit organization under the direction of the Executive Committee of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, established the Fort Bend Forward Harvey Recovery Fund.
The mission of the Fort Bend Harvey Recovery Fund is to raise financial resources to disburse to nonprofit organizations serving flood victims in our local community. Funds will be disbursed based on input from the Fort Bend Recovers network of nonprofit organizations and diverse community leaders with no overhead or administrative fees. All donations received will have a direct impact on the community and donors may request that their individual contribution be directed to a specific city within Fort Bend County, if desired.
To contribute to the Fort Bend Forward Harvey Recovery Found, donations can be made online at https://www.youcaring.com/donatetofortbendrecovery or checks can be made payable to Fort Bend Forward (note Harvey Recovery) and delivered or mailed to: Fort Bend Forward Harvey Recovery, Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, 445 Commerce Green Boulevard, Sugar Land, TX 77478.
The mission of the Fort Bend Forward is to meet the literary, cultural, educational, and health needs of the greater Fort Bend County. For more information, contact Keri Schmidt at 281-491-0216 or Keri@fortbendcc.org.
