Help Those in Need Impacted by Hurricane Harvey

Our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana, especially U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff, Friends Group members, refuge volunteers, and all their families.

Please join us in our effort to help refuge staff, Friends, volunteers and refuge communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We will be working in partnership with local Friends Groups such as the Friends of Aransas, the Friends of Brazoria, the Friends of Anahuac, and others to get help where it is needed most. We are all part of the Refuge System family and our goal is to provide immediate assistance in the form of resources, supplies, and hot meals.

All contributions and gifts we receive for this purpose will be distributed to Friends Group organizations on the ground in the Harvey impact zone to allocate where the needs are greatest.

Civil servants, Friends Group members, and refuge volunteers dedicate their lives to serving others. Now it is time for us to demonstrate our compassion and gratitude for their hard work and commitment to our nation’s wildlife.
