Hurricane Harvey caused catastrophic damage in the Coastal Bend when it made landfall on Friday, August 25, 2017. Especially hard-hit were the cities of Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Rockport, and Refugio. Local attorney Thomas J. Henry has pledged to match every donation up to $100,000.
All donations collected in the fund will go to the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group, operated by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation, and will help the citizens of Aransas, Bee, Brooks, Duval, Jim Wells, Kenedy, Kleberg, Live Oak, Nueces, Refugio and San Patricio counties . All money donated to CBCF will stay in the Coastal Bend to help with long-term clean-up and recovery efforts. Learn more about CBCF at http://www.cbcfoundation.org/
