The Texas higher education community is working with the Communities Foundation of Texas to organize #harveyHELP, a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for emergency aid to help college students impacted by Hurricane Harvey stay in school. Why emergency aid? Research from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation shows that it helps students overcome the obstacles that can cause them to not continue with their education. Interested in joining #harveyHelp? Check out their GoFundMe page!
On behalf of AACC, we are thankful to all of you that have reached out with offers of support and assistance. Together we will weather the storm.
