Emergency Support: Help Coast Guard Members Impacted by Hurricane Harvey

Posted on August 29, 2017

A Message from Coast Guard Foundation President, Susan P. Ludwig

You’ve seen in the news how Hurricane Harvey has devastated Houston and the surrounding areas.

As we see the hurricane rescue efforts unfold, we bear witness to the skill and expertise of those who serve.  These brave Coast Guard service members are working around the clock in high winds, torrential rains, and flooding conditions to help those in Texas and surrounding areas to higher ground. 

While they are working tirelessly to rescue thousands, for many, their own homes and possessions have been destroyed by the storm.  Your generosity will allow the Coast Guard Foundation to provide immediate emergency support, and long-term relief to these heroic men and women and their families, as the rescue efforts turn to restoration and rebuilding.

To donate to the Disaster Relief and Response Fund and help the Coast Guard Foundation meet the critical needs facing the men and women of the Coast Guard, please visit coastguardfoundation.org/Harvey.

Let us come together to support these brave men and women and their families. I urge you to donate right away so we can provide emergency support to our heroes as soon as possible. Your gift will also help meet other critical needs facing the men and women of the Coast Guard at this time.

Semper Paratus,

Susan P. Ludwig
