Hurricane Harvey - What You can Do - APHA Get Ready Resources

 

Dr. Georges Benjamin, APHA Executive Director, sent out an email today that WPHA would like to share: "Our thoughts are with the millions of people across East Texas and surrounding areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. Heavy rains and catastrophic flooding have devastated communities and forced many from their homes. If you’d like to help with disaster response, we’re sharing ways you can donate or volunteer on APHA's Get Ready website.

Even after floodwaters recede, there will be enormous recovery before families can safely return and communities can rebuild. Many public health challenges lie ahead. We are in communication with our federal, state and local partners, including the Texas Public Health Association, and will update our list of ways to help as we learn more.
Thank you for your concern and support for the health and safety of those affected by the storm."

WPHA is keeping all those in Texas, as well as all of those affected, in our thoughts - and a reminder to show your neighbors kindness - not only today, but everyday. Consider donating your time and/or resources in order to help others!
