Thanks & Gig'em to all the Wh30p Members that helped #BTHOHarvey
Wh30p Houston was founded in 2012 and has focused on raising money for Aggie Ring scholarships through various social events targeting Houston area Texas A&M former students in their 30s. During Hurricane Harvey while the rains were still coming and we were all still in "sit and wait mode" Wh30p used their Facebook page, website and email database to coordinate dozens of volunteers at 29 various flooded homes starting on August 29th - September 8th. Wh30p's community & resources made it easy to activate the Aggie Network and disperse help where needed including families in Baytown, Katy, Kingwood, Richmond, Memorial, and Meyerland. The response was amazing, we even had two Ags from the class of 01 & volunteer all the way from New Mexico, several come in from various parts of Texas including staff at The Association of Former Students, and several superstar volunteers that were working tirelessly several days in a row. Although we didn’t exclusively volunteer at Aggie homes, there were many Aggies that reached out and requested help for themselves, their parents, other family members, and their friends. We even volunteered at a few homes with current students. In reflecting back on our efforts, it seems as though there was something very comforting in knowing a group of Aggies was going to show up to help, they didn’t’ seem like strangers, could be trusted, and were hard workers. We also collected cleaning supply donations from members of the Dallas A&M Club, through a game watching cleaning supply drive/party, and through some very generous financial donors. These supplies were distributed to the homes with Wh30p volunteers as well as several other homes in the communities.
