Tioga United Way, Inc.

"It is in times of need that we discover the full impact of a community United. As Hurricane Harvey wreaks havoc on homes and communities across Southeastern Texas and Southwestern Louisiana—producing up to 50 inches of rain in some areas—United Ways across the region are helping families face devastating losses from the historic flooding with an eye toward long-term recovery.

The largest of its kind to make landfall in the United States since 2005, Hurricane Harvey is leaving a wake of destruction in its path—but there is hope. From Hurricane Katrina to the flooding in Tamil Nadu, India, United Ways have a history of coordinating community responses to help those affected by natural disasters. Whether by raising funds to aid in relief efforts, engaging first-responders or mobilizing partners to help with on-the-ground long-term recovery, United Ways offer hope and help when it is most needed." -United Way Worldwide Press Release
