Dear Butler Students, Faculty, and Staff,
Many of us have been paying close attention to the devastating effects and aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in areas of Texas as well as Louisiana. We know there are many Butler community members who have friends and family who have been affected by this disaster and our hearts go out to those directly affected as well as those watching from afar as loved one’s navigate the long road of recovery. If you are someone who wants to help the relief effort, we wanted to provide some guidance. In the early stages of relief there may not yet be the infrastructure to best direct volunteers or donations of supplies. Financial donations, however, can provide organizations on the ground with the flexibility they need to identify and acquire the resources most necessary. One option is to donate to the United Way of Houston, which has set up a Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund here. Alternatively, the Clinton Foundation has generated a list of local organizations that address particular areas of need. That list can be found here. No matter what our individual means and capabilities are, we know the Butler community is a place of compassion and care and we thank all those who are exploring ways of helping the relief effort that is just beginning. This statement, as a response to Hurricane Harvey, was crafted by colleagues in the Program for Leadership and Service Education, the Volunteer Center, Student Government Association, the Center for Faith and Vocation, and the Center for Citizenship and Community.
