Hurricane Laura Relief Fund is an effort by a group of Texas A&M students including Dalan Jones and Vinny Hale to help assist in our community that was extremely damaged by the devastating Hurricane Laura. As life-long residents of Southeast Texas, they know first-hand just how impactful these major hurricanes can be to families and businesses. Please join us on our mission to help rebuild Texas and Lousiana communities. While they are partnering directly with United Way of Orange County, the funds will be split between United Way of Orange County and United Way of Southwest Louisianna. Thank you all for your support!
