Message From the Office of the GBTA President
*This post was also sent as an email to GBTA Members.*
Recently, GBTA launched a GoFundMe campaign created specifically for GBTA or Texas BTA members who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Nearly 600 individuals who are members of GBTA or Texas BTA live in the impacted areas and now face the destruction left behind following the unfathomable amounts of rain and historic flooding.
I want to personally thank all of you who have already donated to help your fellow members. The money raised through September 9th will be designated specifically for those members impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
This past weekend, we watched as another historic storm swept through the Caribbean, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Florida. More than 320 individuals who are members of GBTA or the local Florida BTA Chapters live in the impacted areas that faced the destruction of Hurricane Irma.
In an effort to help meet the needs of members impacted by Hurricane Irma as well, going forward, all new donations to the GoFundMe campaign will be part of a general disaster relief fund. These funds will be used to assist members impacted by either Hurricane Harvey or Irma, or other natural disasters.
There is still time left to donate if you would like to help out. Funds raised will be made available to those impacted active members in need of food, medication, clothing, temporary housing, transportation to work, etc.
GBTA is working to identify members who were negatively impacted and we need your help. If you need assistance and would like to be considered for support from the Fund, please complete this form.
Our thoughts remain with those impacted during this difficult time as these regions looks to rebuild.
